Green Turtle

Green turtles use major current systems to migrate to their natal nesting beaches.

Radio tagging nesting females shows that green sea turtles are migratory, and their non-breeding range includes locations from as far north as 40 degrees north to as far south as 40 degrees south. These areas include parts of the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea, and northern Indian Ocean.

Male and female green turtles use major current systems when migrating to their natal nesting beaches.
