Green turtles (Chelonia mydas) competing for space at a cleaning station on a coral reef. Cleaning stations are areas on reefs where turtles rest while surgeonfish and other types of coral fish feed on parasites living on them. The green turtle is under threat of extinction due to the trade in turtles and because of marine pollution. Photographed near Sipadan, Malaysia.
