Sea Turtle T-Shirt for Ocean Lovers
Ocean lovers are people who appreciate and enjoy the ocean and everything it has to offer. They may enjoy swimming, diving, boating, or simply watching the waves crash against the shore. People are also fond of adoring marine creatures.
Some people become ocean lovers after a life-changing experience, such as swimming with dolphins or diving in a coral reef. Others may be born into a family that has always loved the ocean and been drawn to its power and beauty. No matter how or why someone becomes an ocean lover, once they are hooked, they are always looking for new ways to experience the ocean’s magic.
Why Is the Ocean Important?
It provides us with oxygen
The ocean is the largest provider of oxygen in the world. It's estimated that the ocean produces about 90% of the oxygen we breathe. How? Through carbon dioxide and heat exchange.
The ocean is important for this reason as well because it ensures the survival of all living things on earth. It produces 50-80% of the world's oxygen, absorbs 30%-40% of all man-made carbon dioxide, and regulates the earth's temperature.
It regulates the weather
The ocean also helps to regulate the weather by absorbing heat and energy from the sun and then releasing it slowly over time. This helps to moderate the earth's temperature, which in turn helps to regulate the weather. The ocean also plays a role in creating and controlling storms. This is known as ocean currents. A good example of this can be found in the Gulf Stream, which travels up from the Caribbean to the North Atlantic Ocean where it warms the atmosphere and influences weather patterns on land.
It is a great source of food
The ocean provides us with an abundance of food. A source of seafood, it is very healthy, delicious and nutritious. Sustainability is important, so ask the source of the fish you buy. A source of plant life, it is a good source of fiber and nutrients. Yet, the ocean remains largely misunderstood and under-appreciated.
It creates millions of stable jobs
The ocean creates jobs. For example, the fishing industry employs millions of people globally. The tourism industry also relies heavily on the ocean, as people love to visit and explore the vast and beautiful oceans. Many careers are related to the ocean, such as marine biology, oceanography, and coastal engineering. So next time you go to the beach or look upon your beautiful oceanside view, remind yourself how this scenic beauty gives a sense of purpose for many people.
Take a Look at It One by One
There are many things in the ocean that play an important part in keeping our planet healthy. All of the objects and creatures you see on the ocean, no matter how small or big, have their own purpose of existence which is to keep the balance of our beloved planet.
We need marine animals more than we could imagine. It is important to value, care and love them all the time and not only during Earth Day. If we do not continue to spread awareness, people will never learn and grow with an urgency to protect the ocean. Subsequently, every business and country will become a burden to our planet.
Sea Turtles Beyond Its Adorable Features
For that reason, Shop the Low Country created sea turtle t-shirts to help people better understand what a great gift these endangered creatures truly are. Since no organization can address the whole problem of the ocean at once, we decided to do this one-step-at-a-time.
Why Sea Turtles?
Sea turtles are one of the most adorable creatures in the ocean. They are known for their cute and charming features. Most of the time these fascinating creatures are used as an inspiration to design accessories and other items for collections.
You can often see turtle toys for kids in the mall. There are sellers that even sell stickers and souvenirs in the shape of a sea turtle here and there. It really makes gifts that customers bought more meaningful. This marine animal is created humbly that's why it can melt your heart and will make you love them.
What many people don't know, however, is that sea turtles play a very important role in the health of our planet. They help to keep the ocean's ecosystem in balance by eating seagrass and algae. Sea turtles also play a crucial role in marine research because they can travel long distances and stay underwater for a long time.
Those who study the sea turtles use a variety of methods, but one method, in particular, is very effective. That method is tagging the sea turtle with a transmitter that emits low-frequency signals that travel underwater. A computer picks up on this signal and creates an accurate map based on the turtle's movements. The information received from studying these maps can help the experts create new ways to conserve and protect sea turtles.
The Most Endangered Sea Turtles
Sea turtles are a group of endangered animals that live in the oceans. All of which is happening due to human negligence. People are using marine resources as if they are unlimited.

Loggerheads feed off jelly fish and listed as vulnerable due to the threats of extinction. Major threats to their population are entanglement in fishing gear, coastal development, human exploitation and plastic pollution as turtles mistakingly identifying floating plastic bags as edible jellyfish.
Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtle
The smaller of the sea turtles at 30 inches in length with weight of up to 100 lbs, these coastal turtles prefer to eat crabs. Look for them in SC and the southeastern US along the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Habitats with muddy or sandy bottoms help them to more easily find prey. Famous for their huge crop nestings.

The Olive Ridley Sea Turtle is a critically endangered species. The turtle has a greenish-gray color with a leathery shell. It is named for the olive-colored ridges that run down its head and back.
