    This makes me sad to see them being killed, eggs being poached and predated upon. They are so rare and majestic why would you want to harm such an amazing creature. Extinct within 10 years is tragic. Lets stop this from happening!!

      Killing to provide meat for the local community, is not immoral. Killing 10 a month for selling souvenirs or for supplying restaurants, is however not necessary.

    Awesome video! Thank you for posting this. I'm so gonna use it in Biology class to teach my students all about the LBT now. I've been searching for the perfect video about this sea turtle for the longest while! I am from Trinidad and Tobago and every year, from March to August, thousands of leatherbacks visit our shores to lay their nests. I've volunteered for a few summers to do beach patrols at night. LBT's ftw!

    Swimming with turtles is really an experience... If you want to swim with big Loggerhead Turtles, Dalyan in Turkey is the place to go. For only 180 lira (£20) you can go on a boat trip to snorkel out at some bays which are so secluded. The size and quantity of the turtles out there is amazing. Quite a life changing experience.

    Can someone bring domesticated cows and pigs over, show them how to breed and farm, and if the natives ask could the biologists say your god could disappear. Could that work?
