Turtles - who needs them?

Some turtles sightings in English language media include a BBC report about an increase in UK strandings, and a dotearth post on the second Pacific Ocean Great Turtle Race.

The GTR's cartoon caricatures are not to everyone's taste ('fun', not dignity), but the site has a good intro to Leatherbacks (go to the 'sea turtle school' tab).

A good source of information for the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia is ioseaturtles.org - including the introductory film.

Some of the sharpest commentary from Wallace Nichols, which includes a link to a paper with a vision for restoration.
