The sea turtle is characterized by the association with the Earth and earth symbols of groundedness and patience. It symbolizes our peaceful walk on this earth. It represents the path we take as we embark on our journey through life:

  • Symbol of the world, of the Earth
  • Ability to stay grounded, even in moments of disturbances and chaos
  • Slowing down, pacing yourself
  • Determination, persistence
  • Emotional strength and understanding
  • Ancient wisdom

The sea turtle is also linked to the spirit of the water and the fluid nature of emotions.

 

" I have always felt akin to the symbolism of the Sea Turtle, and as a mother its message has resonated stronger than ever. The qualities I must display to truly nurture my child are so aligned. My son will learn of the power of determination & drive, yet the strength in patience and pace. He will learn to be strong yet vulnerable in emotion, learning to remain grounded yet expressive of his inner self. My child, like the turtle, will flow, resilient and peaceful, with I as his current of water, guiding him through the ocean of life. "

Turtles have seen the Earth undergo many changes over time and managed to survive them all. However, things are tough in the modern era when you are a slow breeding, long-lived reptile. Turtles face many threats from changes in climate, loss of nesting habitat, increased ocean pollution, and deliberate and accidental deaths caused by fishing activities around the world. These factors combined are pushing many of the world's populations of sea turtles toward extinction.

The Sea Turtle Foundation is working to address these threats through rescuing stranded turtles in North Queensland, training others to respond to strandings, providing educational programs for schools and communities and supporting research into turtle health and ecology throughout the Indo-Pacific region.

It is no coincidence that these beautiful and charismatic animals are the photogenic face of so many tourism brochures and environmental campaigns. Besides being iconic symbols of our ocean environment, sea turtles fulfil vital functions in ocean ecosystems. The time has come for us to protect sea turtles and rebuild their populations to healthy and sustainable levels as a vital step in ensuring healthy and resilient oceans for the future.
