What is a Hawksbill
The hawksbill sea turtle is a critically endangered species native to the tropical reefs of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans. As a result of overhunting for their shells and meat, the hawksbill sea turtle population has been decreasing despite conservation efforts and laws. They are also threatened by predators that target young sea turtles and eggs. The U.S. Government have enacted several protection acts for sea turtles in an attempt to reduce sea turtle poaching.
