Sea turtles are a fundamental link in marine ecosystems. They help maintain the health of sea grass beds and coral reefs that benefit commercially valuable species such as shrimp, lobster and tuna. Sea turtles are the live representatives of a group of reptiles that have existed on Earth and traveled our seas for the last 100 million years.
The turtle totem teaches us to walk our path in peace and with determination and serenity. Those who have the turtle as totem or spirit animal are encouraged to take a break in their busy lives and look around or within themselves for more grounded, long lasting solutions. The turtle symbolizes peace, whether peace of mind or a peaceful relationship with the environment. Helena Harris, Spiritanimal.com
