Are we headed for a world without turtles?

Climate change is another threat for some species, both because of its effects on weather patterns and because of how temperature changes can affect turtle eggs.

At one major sea-turtle rookery in Australia's tropical north, for example, research has found that female turtles now outnumber males by at least 116 to 1 . As more beaches warm up and produce fewer and fewer male hatchlings, researchers say this could lead to a crash in sea turtle populations.
