Dive deep into the world of the green turtle

Among the sea’s most cherished inhabitants is the awe-inspiring green turtle, a symbol of marine elegance. Our resource pack includes a high-definition video of these gentle giants taken by renowned British wildlife photographer, Robert Fuller, so you can see them in action. This visual masterpiece takes you beneath the waves, offering a glimpse into the lives of these serene creatures as they swim gracefully through the ocean.

We’ve also included three green turtle factsheets that make the perfect educational resource for teachers wanting to study the green turtle or sustainability with their class — whether as an Earth Day activity or at any other time of the year. The first shares numerous kid-friendly facts about green turtles, such as the method by which hatchlings find their way to the ocean (they use moonlight) and the factors that influence green turtle gender (it comes down to temperature, not sex chromosomes). The other two factsheets explore how climate change, fishing, and pollution affect green turtles along with some simple ways in which kids can help protect this endangered beauty.

Thanks to these resources, kids in preschool, primary school, and beyond will be captivated by the green turtle and inspired to save energy and recycle plastics in order to protect them. Download your classroom-ready resource pack here.
