As well as the natural challenges of life as a young loggerhead turtle such as avoiding larger predators, this little loggerhead will face a number of other human-made threats such as loss of habitat to coastal development, pollution, and accidentally being scooped up as bycatch by commercial fishing vessels.
The solution to giving loggerhead turtles and other marine species a chance is to increase marine protected areas in the Mediterranean Sea.
