Sea turtle populations around the world are endangered, and in recent years tourism has been a critical element in worldwide efforts to save them. More travelers seek meaningful experiences that bring them close to nature and wildlife, and opportunities to interact with and help sea turtles now exist at locations around the globe, from remote beaches to urban labs. In A Worldwide Travel Guide to Sea Turtles, a scientist, a conservationist, and a journalist have come together to provide a guide to the places where people can view sea turtles and participate in authentic conservation projects. Covering five continents and including the South Pacific and Caribbean, the authors direct readers to the parks, reserves, and research sites where they can responsibly observe turtles in the wild, especially nesting beaches where people can see female sea turtles lay eggs and hatchlings make their harrowing journey from nest to sea. Options for on-site lodging and other amenities are included, if available, as well as details of other nearby attractions that travelers may wish to include in their itineraries.

In 2001, the Ashaninka community of the river Amonia adopted a new system for the sustainable management of the tracajá, a type of river turtle that had become scarce due to over-consumption of its eggs and meat by whites and Indians.

The journals of early maritime explorers traversing the Atlantic Ocean often describe swarms of sea turtles, once a plentiful source of food. Many populations had been decimated by the 1950s, when Archie Carr and others raised public awareness of their plight. One species, the green turtle, has been the most heavily exploited due to international demand for turtle products, especially green turtle soup. The species has achieved some measure of recovery due to thirty years of conservation efforts, but remains endangered. In "The Case of the Green Turtle", Alison Rieser provides an unparalleled look into the way science and conservation interact by focusing on the most controversial aspect of green turtle conservation-farming. While proponents argued that farming green sea turtles would help save them, opponents countered that it encouraged a taste for turtle flesh that would lead to the slaughter of wild stocks. The clash of these viewpoints once riveted the world. Rieser relies on her expertise in ocean ecology, policy, and law to reveal how the efforts to preserve sea turtles changed marine conservation and the way we view our role in the environment. Her study of this early conservation controversy will fascinate anyone who cares about sea turtles or the oceans in which they live.

"Sea turtles globally are in trouble, and human activities are largely to blame. The most critically endangered sea turtle in the world, the Kemp's Ridley, is in the most danger of becoming extinct. Once heralded as an endangered species success story in the making, it would all change after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. This feature length documentary focuses on a record-breaking sea turtle stranding season in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where over 1,200 cold-stunned sea turtles washed ashore, over 90 percent of the Kemp's Ridley sea turtles. Hundreds of people from over 10 states and 21 institutions came together to rescue these cold-stunned sea turtles, which also features 'the largest airlift of an endangered species, probably anywhere in the United States, and quite possibly the world.' It will take the actions of humans in New England, Texas, Georgia and across the United States and in Mexico to prevent the extinction and determine the ultimate survival of the Kemp's Ridley sea turtle."--Container.

A passionate account by an ardent conservationist who records his experiences while undertaking fundamental research, this book details how sea turtles are suddenly struggling to survive, largely because of harm that has been done to the planet's oceans and beaches. Much can be learned about the condition of the planet's environment by looking at sea turtles because they have existed for more than 100 million years and travel throughout the world's oceans. Including descriptions of the life cycles of turtles as well as fascinating facts, this book asks what their demise means for the human species. The remarkable story also highlights the active role South Africa has played in protecting its own sea turtle population and researching the turtle populations in neighboring countries.
