Turtles have been living on this planet from two hundred million years ago.
Their history goes back much further than that of humans.
There are eight species of SEA TURTLES in the world.
Mainly three species can be found in the oceans surrounding Japan; Green turtles, Hawksbill turtles, and Loggerhead turtles.
Out of three, Loggerhead turtles come to these beaches to lay their eggs.
