Sea turtles are endangered.

Of the 7 sea turtle species, 6 all but the flatback, exist in the United States, and all are endangered. Threats to sea turtles include coastal development which leads to loss of nesting habitat.

Making previous nesting areas unsuitable, harvesting turtles for eggs or meat, bycatch in fishing gear, entanglement in or ingestion of marine debris, boat traffic and climate change.
