Sea turtles are one of the very few animals to graze on seagrass and help maintain the health of the seagrass beds. Like normal lawn grass, seagrass needs to be constantly cut short to be healthy and help it grow across the ocean floor. Over the past decades, due to pollution, there has been a decline in seagrass beds, leading to a decline in the sea turtle population.
