The Loggerhead Sea Turtle occurs in warm tropical waters worldwide. Loggerheads were once hunted for their meat and eggs, and their shells have been used for decoration. Loggerheads are the most common sea turtle in the United States, and are found from Virginia to Texas, and are especially abundant off the coast of Florida, although records indicate the nesting rates are rapidly declining.
Loggerheads spend much of their time drifting with ocean currents, using sargassum for food and shelter. Loggerhead sea turtles can submerge for long periods of time and can live up to nearly 200 years. For more information on the conservation of sea turtles, go to www.savetheseatutles.org.
