The Hawsbill turtle also known as “Eretmochelys imbricata”, can commonly be found in shallow lagoons and coral reefs. They are currently endangered due to the fact that water pollution has caused more and more coral reefs to die leaving them out in the open with no place to hide, or live. As a result of this they are hunted by both humans and animals. They have vibrant colored shells which make them an easy target to spot in the ocean. In my piece I have placed some of the items that contribute to their misfortune. These items consist of plastic bags: turtles eat them by mistake thinking it is jelly fish and loose nets: they get tangled in them, so once they grow it cuts into their skin in the process.
