Inspired during a vacation on the island of Maui. I still remember the warmth of the morning sun as I sat by the sea and listened to the waves, looking to the big green sea turtles on the beach. I had never felt more peaceful before and for sure, that was a life-changing moment. Hopefully this music gives you some of this energy.The green turtle is one of the largest sea turtles and the only herbivore among the different species. Green turtles are in fact named for the greenish color of their cartilage and fat, not their shells. In the Eastern Pacific, a group of green turtles that have darker shells are called black turtles by the local community. Green turtles are found mainly in tropical and subtropical waters. Like other sea turtles, they migrate long distances between feeding grounds and the beaches from where they hatched. Classified as endangered, green turtles are threatened by overharvesting of their eggs, hunting of adults, being caught in fishing gear and loss of nesting beach sites.
