Underwater Video of a Hawksbill Sea Turtle in Paradise

Check out shomophoto's recent underwater video that was shot on the coast of St. John. I believe the baby sea turtle that appeared is a Hawksbill Sea Turtle. This video showcases the beautiful coral reefs and sea life here in the US Virgin Islands, enjoy!


Here in the Caribbean these sea turtles are critically ‪endangered‬. Many hunt the Hawksbills for their meat and beautiful shells which have been made into jewelry for centuries.
