"My artwork is called Toby the tortoise and I love Eco kids Planet magazine."turtle-shell-children-competition

"My idea is a turtle shell that filters micro-plastics out of the ocean. It has a hole in the top, which allows the water and plastics to go into the shell; it gets filtered and the water comes out underneath. The plastic is compressed, then it floats to the surface of the water to be recycled properly.”

"The Spikey River Turtle has spikes to catch its prey and a hard shell to protect itself from predators."

Silvia, age 10, Broxbourne

Caleb, age 9, Churchdown

"It's shell looks like coral to help it disappear into the coral reef it lives in and it's skin colour helps it camouflage the rest of it's body into the sand. And if that doesn't work it uses its strong beck to bite at its enemies . It's a very strong swimmer and can easily out swim the fastest olympic swimmer . It is called a coral turtle. And it is found at the great baria reef one of the biggest reefs in the world."
