    It is argued how many species of sea turtles exsist, but there are definitely six.  These six consist of Green, Loggerhead, Hawaksbill, Leatherback, Olive Ridley, and Kemp’s Ridley.  Flatback turtles, which are found only in Australia, are usally considered a seperate species, therefore making seven total, however that is debated.  As far as the Black turtle goes, many consider them to be a subspecies of the Green turle.
