In the conclusion of your essay, you can restate why recycling is so important. There are more than two million green sea turtles in the world. The green sea turtle is not the only sea turtle whose numbers are getting smalle r. The green sea turtle provides food for human beings. A lot of countries do not allow people to hunt the turtles Fisherman do their best to avoid catching the turtles. The turtles are sometimes caught in old fishing lines.

The turtles like to eat plastic. Tourists frighten the turtles away from their nesting beaches. Bright lights are dangerous for young turtles. Scientists have known about the killer disease for a long time. The green sea turtle is a large turtle that can grow to 1.5 metres in length and weigh up to 200 kilograms. It is found in warm coastal waters around the world, but the largest populations today are in Florida and the Caribbean, Hawaii, and Borneo. In all these areas the turtles are at risk, with populations in Florida and Mexi co officially described as endangered. Although in the past there were probably several million green sea turtles in th e world, today scientists believe that fewer than 200,000 adult females remain. Below we list some of the reasons why numbers of this and other sea turtles have declined. People around the world have used the meat of the green sea turtle for food sinc e ancient times and it is the main ingredient in turtle soup. The eggs, which the female turtles bury on sandy beaches, are also collected by hunters. Unfortunately, although laws banning the hunting have been passed in many countr ies, people continue to do so illegally. Every year, more than 10,000 sea turtles are accidentally trapped in fishing net s. Unable to breathe, these turtles soon drown. Many of these deaths could be avoided if the fishermen made minor changes to the ir equipment that would allow the turtles to escape. For some reason, many fishermen seem unwilling to do this, although the law requ ires them to do so. The seas are littered with rubbish which can prove deadly to the turtles. They can become entangled in old fishing lines and nets or they may mistake piec es of plastic for food. When the turtles swallow the plastic, it can block their digestive systems and t hen the turtles starve to death. More and more beaches, used by the turtles as nesting areas, are lost every year as tourist areas are developed. This means that the females do not have a familiar place in which to lay their e ggs and as a result some females may not nest at all. Even if the turtles do manage to lay their eggs, these may be crushed by people walking along the beach. Just as seriously, the young turtles are often confused by the bright lights whe n they hatch and are unable to find their way to the sea and safety. In recent years, scientists have reported that a new disease is affecting green sea turtle populations, particularly in Florida and Hawaii. Scientists suspect that the disease, which eventually kills the infected turtles , is caused by a virus or parasite, but the exact cause is not yet known. How interesting! I never knew that. Sorry, I didn't think of that. Don't you just love it here. I suppose you're right. You will hear a person commenting on a new book about global warming.
