By BBN Staff: Today, a dead loggerhead turtle was found in Corozal Bay.
Corozal’s Oceana representative was called to the location where the turtle had apparently died due to an injury from a boat collision.
The loggerhead turtle is one of 3 varieties of sea turtles (green, hawksbill, and loggerhead) that nest in Belize.
Loggerhead turtles are listed as endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
This particular sea turtle is usually 3 feet in length and 200-300 pounds in weight.
The underneath of loggerhead turtles is a medium yellow in color, while the upper shell is usually reddish-brown, long and slightly tapering.
The public is advised to exercise extreme caution to safeguard the wildlife in the sea
