The Hawksbill Turtle, unlike other sea Turtles, feeds predominantly on sponge corals, making it a crucial part of the Coral Reef Ecosystem. Hawksbills are perhaps the most endangered of all sea Turtles being classed as critically endangered on the IUCN red list, due to being hunted for their meat and shell. This footage shows their primal instinctive behavior as they forage for food on the coral reef. Damage to the coral reef can also be seen in the form of coral bleaching and man made impact.
