Litter on the beach can entangle turtles and attract turtle egg predators
, and plastic bags or other trash in the water often appear to sea turtles as food, resulting in great harm to their digestive tracts.
Another factor is that they don't often come into conflict with game- rearing enterprises - they're not great egg predators
on the scale of the peregrine falcon,for instance.
I identified Carrion Crows as egg predators
based on two video recordings and the main predators in this study area are most likely birds.
No previous study has documented egg predators
or alternative causes of nest failure.
