Critically endangered Hawksbill Turtle with Gray Angelfish

This critically endanger Hawksbill turtle and gray angelfish were feeding together in Belize on Turneffe Atoll. The angelfish eats the scraps of the sponges that the turtle tears apart with its strong hawk-like beak. Belize is the second largest barrier reef in the world. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species outlaws the capture and trade of Hawksbill Sea Turtles and produced derived from them.
