Green Sea Turtle in Gulf Shores

September 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

While walking the beach, I noticed something that looked like seaweed in the surf. However, when I got closer to it, I noticed flippers and a hard shell. I was observing a sea turtle! I am not up on my sea turtle identification but I believe this one was a green turtle. I followed it down the beach for about a 100ft. It kept underwater most of the time, coming up for air twice. This was the closest I had ever been to a sea turtle. I have seen them from my kayak but it was at a distance.

Green turtles are seen throughout the world's oceans. According to NOAA fisheries, one of the largest nesting areas for the turtle is Costa Rica. Because they are a migratory animal conservation efforts are coordinated with national and international laws.
