The Hawksbill turtle is one of the world’s great travelers, covering distances of up to 2400km between their feeding and breeding grounds. As you can imagine they are quite athletic as that’s a long distance to swim! They are relatively heavy animals for their size, and generally like to spend time alone. They can sometimes be found sunbathing in the sea, floating on their backs catching a few rays!

Our Hawksbill turtle says…
Hi there, I’m a Hawksbill turtle and I live off the coast of Western Australia. I’m a bit funny looking and have a beak like a parrot! Please help me as I’m currently critically endangered. I desperately need your help before I drift into extinction. There aren’t many of us left and it would be horrible if we all disappeared. Please help us if you can.
