Who doesn't love turtles?!

These types of turtles are critically endangered as people use their shells to make jewelry and ornaments. By just being around, however, these turtles bring much needed tourists and along with them, money, to the people around them. These turtles also eat sponges and make room for fish to eat the corral.
