A Leatherback Turtle feasts on pyrosome – a free-floating colonial tunicate – in the pelagic waters of the Azores. Leatherbacks are known to feed almost exclusively on jellyfish, but I found this turtle ‘trying something new’ during a chance encounter while on assignment searching for tuna.
These ancient mariners have a lineage that dates back more than 100 million years yet, despite having dwelled for so long, today these creatures face substantial threats from anthropogenic stresses. Fishing accidents and climate change continue to harm the global population of these turtles, given that the temperature of eggs determines the sex of hatchlings, and conservation efforts are necessary to protect these animals in the future.
Once the baby turtles reach the ocean after hatching, the leatherback is in perpetual motion and continues to swim for its entire life.
