3D model description

When the film spreads through the webs, it shows that a plastic straw pulled out from the poor turtle's nostrils, which used its misfortune to slightly change the world.

Many people have begun to take the initiative about stop using the plastic straws, and some chain restaurants have no longer offer the plastic straws to their customers. As the matter of fact, it is not just straws that would harm the turtles in the ocean! Marine debris, plastic bags, fishing hooks, abandoned fishing nets, etc. also lead turtles to death. The rapid development of science and technology have created many substances that should not exist in our nature; Unfortunately, most species are not evolving fast enough to catch up with us. These sea turtles are typical examples. They don’t have enough ability to distinguish the jellyfish they love from those plastic bags that might kill them, therefore, It’s much more important that we should think about our nature when we’re trying to get anything further progressed.

I’ve seen turtles swimming below me when snorkeling.
The slow waving movement of their forelimbs looked like that they were flying under the sea, which provided the inspiration [flying sea turtle]. I took my previous origami turtle creation as a prototype, by adding more details, and used the movable mechanism to imitate the body undulating, even the relative movement of the neck and body of the sea turtle
under reaction force. It is my goal to reproduce the turtle swimming gracefully under the sea! After a few weeks of hard work, I completed [flying sea turtle] automata! And I love it a lot! The design process and the final completed work bring me a lot of fun and achievements. Sincerely, I hope everyone can be delighted during the assembling.
