There are two species that are typically encountered around here. The turtles in these photos are green sea turtles. They are assessed by the scientists at IUCN as globally endangered. I saw about 7 of them this week. Less common are the hawksbill sea turtles. They are assessed as critically endangered. I swam with two of them this week, the first time I've ever seen them in Saipan (I've seen them in Palau before).
ell him to the Chinese restaurants for $50. It is so frustrating knowing that a dive shop can make $75 each day per person bringing people to see this fish. He is more than just a scooby snack!
