Did you know that the sex of a turtle hatchling is determined by how warm the sand is where eggs are laid?
As our planet hots up, the portion of turtles being born female will heat up. A recent study of green turtles in the northern Great Barrier Reef showed that 99% of the juvenile turtles in that population are female.
What will this mean as all the old breeding male turtles die out?
Will there be enough males to keep the population going?
Increased global warming is going to affect many of the world’s species in ways we cannot even imagine.
