Green Turtle Slowly Recovering

After a nearly going extinct of sea turtles, the green sea turtles are slowly recovering populations in breeding grounds.
The turtles have been exploited for centuries for meat, eggs and shells.
Because the turtle spend most of thier lives in the sea it is difficult to calculate thier population numbers, we make an effort on counting egg-laying females, no. of tagged turtles brought to us and the no. of hatchlings per nest per year.
