Climate change is an additional, rapidly emerging threat to marine turtles globally.
Rising sea levels and extreme weather events wash nests away and decrease nesting habitat.
In sea turtles, sand temperature determines the gender of developing young – warmer eggs turn into females, cooler eggs turn into males.
Under global warming, turtle sex ratios are likely to become skewed, resulting in population decrease. Source
