        "How about sea turtles?" turns a popular viral phrase into genuine environmental concern on World Turtle Day.
        Turtles are known for their longevity, but their populations are steadily declining around the world due to accidental attachment of fishing gear, illegal collection of turtle eggs, deaths caused by sea garbage, problems with decreasing spawning and feeding areas.
        Rising sea temperatures due to global warming cause sea turtle eggs to hatch into females in recent years. When there is no male to mate with, newly released turtle eggs have no chance of hatching, becoming a new threat to sea turtles by global climate change.
