Sea turtles

Human Mentality is a cause for alarm,
It causes a lot of environmental harm.
If the sea turtle should become extinct
To deliberate human actions it is linked.
Sea turtles take decades to reproduce,
And their offspring are being reduced
Males and females maintain the health at sea
But on the sandy beach its nests has to be.
On the beach where hatched many return
Only to be met by the selfish and stern.
She hauls herself up onto the home beach
Digs a hole and puts her eggs out of reach.
Then she covers and hides them well,
where they are it’s hard to tell.
But people have been there on high alert,
And immediately wait to dig into the dirt.
Huge sacks of eggs they carry away,
So there will be no babies any other day.
It is largely because of this disgrace,
That extinction the sea turtles face.
