“This book is a revelation, linking as it does the survival prospects of nesting colonies thousands of miles from feeding grounds and the dynamic and often heart-warming stories of patience and commitment to conservation that must certainly rate amongst some of the most determined in the world. Not only is the content both quantitative and qualitative but it is the first to bring together in a dynamic and absorbing way the linkages between research, conservation efforts, and communities.” –George Hughes, 2009 recipient of the International Sea Turtle Society Lifetime Achievement Award
