Location: ocean basin across the world, nest on tropical and nontropical beaches. Some loggerheads nest in japan and migrate to Baja California
Climate: in tropical areas the climate is at least 18C or 64F
this is an example of where a sea turtle would live
Global Warming: a big increase in the temperatures of the earths atmosphere
This is an example of beach erosion.
The effects of global warming will have a huge impact on sea turtles. Sea level will rise from melting polar ice is already contributing to the loss of beach and sea turtle nesting habitat. Weather extremes, also connected to climate change, mean more commonly and severe storms which alter nesting beaches, cause erosion and flood sea turtle. Sea turtles use ocean currents to travel and find prey, warming ocean temperatures influence species by altering currents.
