Sea Turtle life

The habitat /breeding grounds for the majestic sea turtle in Riviera Maya is being challenged by development and tourists who are not always respectful. This is an image of a turtle watched on our trip to Akumal. Poem written by FrenchRootsinAmerica and worth the read.


You bear your heavy burden

Diving, eating, swimming and breeding

Exhausted after long hours on sandy beaches

You can not even live in peace in your habitat

You bear your heavy burden

Competing with odd animals on your playground

Competing with developers who take over your beaches

Competing with all kinds of predators

You bear your heavy burden

make the joy of all snorkelers and divers

Protected but also threatened by others

Your life is not really an easy one
