Similar numbers of male and female turtles hatched at Coral Sea site give hope for survival of species Similar numbers of female and male green and hawksbill turtles are hatching in the Coral Sea’s Conflict Islands, new research suggests, despite global heating increasingly leading to “extreme feminisation” of sea turtles. Sea turtles are particularly susceptible to the effects of global heating because their sex determination is temperature dependent, with the proportion of female hatchlings increasing when nests are warmer. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/oct/06/similar-numbers-of-male-and-female-turtles-hatched-at-coral-sea-site-give-hope-for-survival-of-species
