Sea Turtle Cradle / Robot

Sea Turtle Cradle

For more than 100 million years, the distribution of sea turtles has covered a wide range of oceans in the world, playing a vital role in the balance of marine habitats. However, almost all sea turtle species are now listed as endangered. Studies have shown that the warming trend caused by climate change may lead to imbalances in the ratio of males to females in turtles, and the birth rate of female turtles is significantly higher than that of males, which will lead to population decline and affect future genetic diversity. To solve these problems, Sea Turtle Cradle and volunteers help turtles lay eggs smoothly by the sea.
