South America has several species of sea turtles; I took this picture at Praia do Forte (Bahia, Brazil) where there is one of the stations of Tamar Project (an organization which cares for the marine turtles of Brazil). Some ot the turtles at Tamar are Eretmochelys imbricata, Caretta caretta, Lepidochelys olivacea and Chelonia mydas.
