The Olive Ridley sea turtle is the most common species, with about 800,000 nesting females at last count. Sadly, all seven species of sea turtles, including olive ridleys, are on the endangered species list.
As stated in this web site on sea turtles, the most common is the “Honu” or green sea turtle. Sea turtles are also an endagered species because their habitats are being threatened by humans, commercial reasons, and “entanglement in sea debris.”
According to the earthtrust.org link you gave, there are an estimated 200,000 nesting female green sea turtles, a much lower number than the population estimate for olive ridleys.
