Did you know the temperature of the sand where sea turtles lay their eggs effects the gender of the embryo? The warmer the sands are the more females are born. The cooler the sands, the more males are born. With rising climates and warmer temperatures more females are being born which could lead to an imbalance in the ratio of the genders and potentially a collapse in the sea turtle population.
This is my first completed piece for my four part art card series on animals effected by climate change. 😊
