The protected sea turtles of Martinique

     At the Perrine's Farm, you can also see turtles basking in the sunshine. The navy species, that lay their eggs on the beaches of Martinique are very threatened by predators and by the man, and are therefore protected. These are: the Leatherback Turtle (Dermochelys coriacea), the Loggerhead Sea Turtle (Caretta caretta), the olive Ridley sea turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea), the Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata), the Atlantic Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas).
