Reef guardians – marine turtles

Reef guardians – marine turtles

In this unit students investigate marine turtles and their life cycles. They explore the relationship between the survival needs of marine turtles and the habitats they live in, including interactions with other living things. By considering changes to the habitats, such as coastal development and climate change, students predict the effect of these changes on marine turtles, including the impact on the survival of the species. Students recognise how science knowledge helps people understand the effect of their actions.
