Saving Turtles is an in-depth field guide to turtle research, rehabilitation, and conservation around the world.
Synopsis: Of the roughly 300 species worldwide, more than half are threatened with extinction. Carstairs, the chief medical officer at the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre and professor of veterinary science, explains to readers clearly and concisely the many threats facing freshwater, marine and land turtles globally, such as loss of habitat, pollution, boat and car encounters, and the food and pet trades. Includes a behind-the-scenes look at a hospital for severely injured turtles, explaining how injured turtles are rescued, treated, rehabilitated and released back into the wild. Other chapters offer information on such subjects as anatomy and physiology, habitats, hatching and releasing, and field research. The attractively designed, abundantly illustrated book concludes with tips: some simple things young people can do to help turtles (Adapted from Kirkus Reviews).
