RARE SPECIES part 3
The Red Sea is the place, where you can still meet Hawksbill turtle. Today is World Sea Turtle Day and this is good oportunity to share some information about the dangers, which may reduce this small population of sea turtles. "Unfortunately, there are many threats to hawksbill turtle populations, and scientists consider this species to be critically endangered (very highly vulnerable to extinction).
Coastal development has reduced the area where they can successfully nest, dogs and other animals often destroy their nests, and people harvest their eggs for food. They have medium-sized, beautiful carapaces (shells), and historically there was a strong market for adult hawksbill turtle shells. Hunting of adults still occurs in many places, where individuals are either captured at sea or taken from their nesting beaches. Hawksbill turtles are also accidentally captured in fishing operations targeting other species. Finally, because they are the species of sea turtle most closely tied to coral reefs, threats to that vulnerable ecosystem and to the sponges and other species that live on them add to the negative pressure that hawksbill turtles experience. All of these threats have combined to drive hawksbill turtle populations to dangerously low levels. Naturally, only one or two of thousands of eggs will make it to adulthood. These added anthropogenic pressures on nests, juveniles, and young adults make the chance of survival even more challenging."

Emperor Penguins have some of the toughest dads out there.
During the frigid Antarctic winter, in temperatures lower than -80°C, the father will protect his egg.
He will go without food throughout the entirety of this time, over two months, and lose almost half of his body mass by the time the egg hatches!
Always great to see a Nurse shark on a dive 👀🦈
Nurse Sharks can grow up to 3.08m in length. The adult sharks are brown in colour and the young have a spotted colouration that fades with age. They are opportunistic predators that feed mainly on small fish and some invertebrates. The typical litter size is between 21-29 pups.
