The Green Sea Turtle enjoys a lifespan of 100 years.  With paddle-like flippers, it glides gracefully through tropical and sub-tropical waters.  While its carapace displays olive tones, it is named for its vibrant green body fat.  Females migrate to their natal beach, lay up to 200 eggs in a shallow nest, and abandon it.  Hatchlings must fend for themselves as they waddle to the sea.  On earth for 120 million y ears, this species is now endangered.  In the past 50 y ears, overhunting, climate change, habitat loss, disease, and light pollution have reduced its population by 90%.  Now protected by international laws and treaties, perhaps Green Seat Turtles may once again thrive. 

Lithographs and cards are reproduced from Jane’s original art by a fine art printer. Images are printed with vegetable-based, environmentally friendly inks onto the finest quality watercolor-type recyclable paper. Products are printed in the U.S.A. and use raw materials made in the U.S.A.
