Caretta Caretta is a species of oceanic turtle that lives in the oceans and the Mediterranean Sea. Its chromosome hasn’t changed for 66 million years.

Loggerhead is on the red list of endangered species and is considered a vulnerable species according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Their number is declining due to climate change, water pollution, the development of new beaches, fishing, and other human activities. The disappearance of turtles will lead to the disappearance of part of the food chain on the planet.

Residents of the Cirali village, Turkey, have created Ulupinar environmental protection development and operation cooperative to protect Caretta Caretta. After 25 years of conservation work, the number of turtles has increased, and the status of the species in the Mediterranean Sea was transferred from “vulnerable” to “least concern”.
