Vanishing Turtle

VanishingTurtle (2)

Why Vanishing?    After existing for over 100 million years as a species their struggle to survive is heroic.  Loss of the grasses they eat, destruction of their breeding grounds, folks hunting their eggs and harvesting their flesh are just some of the causes of endangerment. Although many individual and environmental groups are working to find sustainable solutions to stop their demise, the magnificent Sea Turtles mere existence is in serious peril.   I attempted to artistically and imaginatively demonstrate their protective camouflage coloring.  My wish is to call attention to this issue and hopefully lift awareness.
