- Baby green sea turtles climb from their sand nests, their shells still soft as leather, and the race for survival is on. They dash madly for the safety of the sea, impelled by ancient instinct, but the frigate birds that circle overhead are merciless and hungry. The birds are not their only threat. Humans are driving them to extinction. Green sea turtles are listed as highly endangered: the greatest threat comes from hunting, for food and for curios, and accidental entanglement in fishing gear.

- Quand les bébés des tortues de mer vertes sortent de leur nid de sable, leur carapace est encore aussi souple que du cuir et la lutte pour la vie commence. Mues par leur instinct, elles se précipitent vers la mer pour y chercher la sécurité, mais les frégates qui tournoient au-dessus d'elles sont affamées et sans pitié. Ces oiseaux ne sont pas leur seule menace. Les êtres humains aussi les condamnent à disparaître. Les tortues vertes figurent sur la liste des espèces hautement menacées : si elles sont avant tout traquées pour leur chair ou en tant que curiosité, il leur arrive aussi de se faire prendre accidentellement dans des équipements de pêche.
