A turtle didn't make it to the water.

General
When i pick the Turtle quest where you have to defend them against birds and crabs.

I afk for a good 5 minutes then do the quest. I gain great pleasure knowing a lot of them didn't make it to the water.
Do you ever come back and find you won?

The chance is very small about that. I tried it several times, but every time there was a huge crab wall that no turtle could pass.
Started doing the same, good WQ to go to the bathroom and/or get somethign to eat/drink! Also all those seagulls and crabs is feed on their natural prey... It's like shooting lions who hunt down zebras or wolves deers. It's wrong.

It's the natural way of life, helping too many turtles will lead to issues.

I mean , the birds gotta eat also...

I always wondered this, never got around to actually trying it mind you...
Are the little turtles going to be grown up Tortillans one day, or just normal turtles?
Tortollans are hypocrites! They say "The cycle of life can be cruel." when a turtle can't make it to the water, so you'd think they are all nice and kind. But then, its also the Tortollan vendor who sells this scroll:

There is a quest in Stormsong during which a little girl sends you to save small turtles, which means you have to kill big turtles, which ends with the little girl throwing the small turtles in the turtle soup.

Think of all the starving crabs and birds. They have families and we killed them while they were trying to provide food for their children !!

The turtles are the bad guys tricking us to upset the balance just so we get epics from their vendors !!
It's vital that everyone do this. If we weren't present, then at least 90% of the turtles would not make it to the water, as they've evolved to do over the previous thousands of years.

By eliminating all the predators and ensuring that all the turtles make it to the water, we're actually precipitating the forthcoming Tortollan Malthusian Crisis, in which the vastly out-sized Tortollan population will consume all plant matter on both Zandalar and Kul Tiras, leaving both islands as barren deserts and causing innumerable legions of starving turtle-men to invade both Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms in search of food. Alliance and Horde, divided by their own petty differences, will be unable to stand against the combined might of the army of Loh, leading to both major factions collapsing and previously lush areas like Stanglethorn and Feralas being stripped bare.

I can only assume this will be the theme of the expansion after the next one.
I mean if those crabs had a rep we'd be killing the turtles instead.
They don't make it to the water because they are not turtles

Especially if the crab rep vendor sells a mount.

Indeed, judging by the model they use they are actually tortoises, so they are screwed either way.
A turtle made it to the seagull! Many of them!

ALL pets you can catch are treated as critters. Just go somewhere where you can catch turtles and... do what you want.
For Science of course.

Letting those poor birds starve is especially bad AND dangerous. Pa'ku is the loa of winds, I'm sure she is getting mad at us for letting her children starve.
