Contests: Special

Enter today for your chance to win a copy of A Worldwide Travel Guide to Sea Turtles by Wallace J. Nichols, Brad Nahill and Melissa Gaskill.

Sea turtle populations around the world are endangered, and in recent years tourism has been a critical element in worldwide efforts to save them. In recent years, five sea turtle species have been documented on the Texas coast and more Kemp’s ridleys nest more often in Texas than anywhere else. 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.
