The Least Migratory of the Sea Turtles

One of the most distinct sea turtle species, the flatback sea turtle is easily identifiable by its flat, smooth, oval shaped shell covered in a wax-like substance. Flatbacks are olive-green in color with yellow tones on its belly and flippers. They are the only species that do not migrate large distances, preferring to stay within its limited population range. In fact, they have the second smallest distribution around the world, next to the Kemp’s ridley, found only in the northern coastal region of Australia’s Pacific waters and the Gulf of Papua, New Guinea.
