About Marine Turtles
First appearing more than 100 million years ago, marine turtles represent an ancient and distinctive part of the world's biological diversity. As recently as the 18th and 19th centuries, marine turtles were highly abundant, with some populations numbering well into the millions. In the last several hundred years, however, humans have overwhelmed the species' ability to maintain their numbers. We capture them intentionally for food, skin, and shell. We capture them accidentally in fisheries. We destroy their foraging, nesting, and resting habitats. Most recently, we have been polluting the environment in which they live, the oceans. Today, few populations of marine turtles are unaffected. Most are declining, often seriously. Many are extinct. Read the Full Story

The results are published in the PNAS Online Early Edition the week of June 25-29, 2007. Read the Full Story
