Description
As Carl Safinas compelling natural history adventure makes clear, the fate of the leatherback turtle is in our hands. The distressing decline of these ancient sea turtles in Pacific waters and their surprising recovery in the Atlantic illuminate the resultsboth positive and negativeof our interventions and the lessons that can be applied, globally, to restore the oceans and their creatures. We accompany award-winning natural history expert Safina and his colleagues as they track leatherbacks across the worlds oceans and onto remote beaches of every continent, including a thrilling journey from Monterey, California, to nesting grounds in Papua, New Guinea. Throughout, in his peerless prose, Safina captures the delicate interaction between these gentle giants and the humans who are playing a significant role in their survival.
