Coocie's insight:

Conservation: 

 Millions of sea turtles once roamed the earth's oceans, but now only a fraction remain.  Most of this research has been focused on nesting females and hatchlings emerging from the nest, largely because they are the easiest to find and study and their vision underwater is good, but they are nearsighted out of water.

Threats:  Once they emerge, hatchlings make bite-sized meals for birds, crabs and a host of predators in the ocean, Marine pollution can have serious impacts on both sea turtles and the food they eat and Climate change affects nesting beaches.
