There are two species of marine turtles that that are commonly found in the Red Sea: the Hawksbill and the Green Turtle.
You can read more about how to know the two species from each other in this blog post .
You can help in gathering information about their distribution and life cycle, if you send your pictures to TurtleWatch Egypt – which we strongly support.
Go to www.TurtleWatchEgypt.net and contribute with your photos of turtles. You do not need to know anything about them. But it is really helpful, if you send your photos with information on where and when the pictures were taken.
Any information is useful, but you can learn more about identifying individuals here.
You can download a catalogue (a pdf – available at the end of the blog post) with more than 70 individual Green turtles – absolutely free.
