In Defense of Sea Turtles by Raneem

Why do you think people don’t really care about sea turtles? Shouldn’t we do something? Well, readers, if you are reading this piece of writing, please tell other people about it.

First, sea turtles are very important to the ecosystem because they eat jellyfish in the ocean that can make you die. If you kill them, the ocean will be so dirty you will get sick if you swallow a little bit of water.

Sea turtles last very long, luckily, because sea turtles are part of the environment. Also, we are lucky that in this world there are sea turtles because if you find their eggs you can take them to eat them. However, if you find a sea turtle in the ocean, please don’t take it to keep it.

In addition, if you find them, don’t poison them or take their shells for decoration. Also, some weird people make sea turtles in a bottle charm, which is unnecessary. People also decorate turtles to make them look beautiful, which is also unnecessary.

To celebrate turtles for their wonderful job and show how important they are to us, we should have a sea turtle rescue center for turtles that get injured. We can have a sea turtle egg hunt where you hide balls representing their eggs and hide them so that other people hunt for them. Also, we should have a Sea Turtle Day when we can decorate our class with sea turtles and we can have turtle sports like do a race running like a turtle or swimming like a turtle.

Since sea turtles are very important to the environment, we should take good care of them!

  1. Dear Raneem,
    I agree!! We should do something about Sea Turtles and their habitat. I enjoyed your piece because you covered all of the reasons we need to keep Sea Turtles. If you write another piece about Sea Turtles maybe you could include some more facts and what we can do to help save them. For example: Did you know that Sea turtles can mistake plastic bags for Jellyfish and choke on them and die. So please don’t litter. Great story Raneem!!
