The coral reef is a habitat for many varieties of marine life. Turtles are one of the many extraordinary species that live in the coral reef. They are reptiles that lay eggs in the sand. The coral reef provides the turtles with food, air, water, and a place to live and not be disturbed by predators. Without the coral reefs, turtles would probably be extinct because of all their harmful predators. People, pollution, predators are the main reasons why most turtles are endangered. There are several endangered turtles that can be found in Hawai'i. The Hawksbill turtle and the very famous Hawaiian green sea turtle are two endangered turtles.
