Marine turtles are reptiles appeared in the waters of the globe more than 100 million years ago. It represent an old and important component of global biodiversity. There are seven species: the Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas), the loggerhead (Caretta caretta) turtle carapace flat (Natator depressus), hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata), leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea), the turtle olive (Lepidochelys olivacea) and the Kemp’s Ridley (Lepidochelys kempi).
These species got long life and a variety of habitats during their life cycle that leads them to make important migrations. These characteristics make them particularly sensitive to human activities (urbanization, bycatch or accidental catch, pollution, …). Abundant in the past, all these species are threatened and are the subject of conservation measures through several conventions (Barcelona Convention, 1976; Bonn Convention, 1979 Bern Convention, 1982; etc …).
