The Most Abundant Sea Turtles

One of the smallest sea turtle species, the olive ridley is named for its greenish skin and shell coloring, and is closely related to the Kemp’s ridley. The olive ridley is the most abundant of all sea turtles and is only found in warm, tropical waters, primarily of the Pacific and Indian Oceans, but can also be found in parts of the Atlantic. Because of their large numbers yet small global distribution, the density of them is high, increasing your chance as a scuba diver to encounter these elegant swimmers as compared with species around the world.
