Turtle Power

Flatback, Loggerhead, Green, Leatherback, Hawksbill, Kemp’s Ridley and Olive Ridley are the seven types of Sea Turtles represented here by the seven baby turtles swimming alongside their mother. ‘They’re all endangered,’ I explain to my daughter.

I sketched the turtles and my daughter drew the pink flowers (of course) and help create the sea using pencils and oil pastels. To find out more you might like to visit
