This protected sea turtle nest is a visual reminder that nature & humans are not always kind. Sea Turtles have many natural predators on land and in the sea. Humans can be unkind without knowing it by traipsing around on top of a nest. This is why the park rangers put these barriers around the nesting spots to protect them from humans and other predators that may dig up these endangered eggs. Humans are amongst the biggest threat to sea turtles. The pollution of plastics, discarded fishing gear, petroleum by-products and other debris harm & kill them when they ingest these items or become entangled in them. This is a worldwide problem.
