The beautiful endangered Sea Turtle, from the giant Leatherback to the Hawksbill, Loggerhead and Green Turtle, are suffering greatly from climate change, pollution, plastics, and the poaching of their eggs, especially in South and Central America.

The turtle is also an important symbol for many cultures. For example, the Indigenous Wayuu of the Northeastern Colombian state of La Guajira, where several species of Sea Turtle lay their eggs, consider the movement of the turtle and the shape and patterns of its shell, of sacred importance.

“Unmoved Mover” is a paradox both in cosmology and philosophy concerning infinite regression. Two common ways of visualizing the paradox are the”turtles all the way down” argument, where a flat Earth is supported on the back of a “world turtle,” and below that turtle is yet another turtle, and so on until infinity, and the “chicken or egg” argument.
