Conservation Status of Sea Turtles

May 26, 2006

From the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries division, here is a information on the conservation status of sea turtles, "air-breathing reptiles with streamlined bodies and large flippers." Included are images and profiles of the species found in the U.S., threats to sea turtles, and international conservation efforts.  For more on the topic, see this BBC News article: Fishing 'major threat' to turtles.  Thanks to the Librarians' Index to the Internet for that.
