Sea turtle populations have been decimated over the past several centuries, with current numbers at mere fractions of pre-Columbus times. Although they still face a multitude of threats, some populations are recovering and showing signs of long-term growth. These successes are the product of strong local and international conservation efforts and a network of individuals dedicated to preserving sea turtles for future generations. Take a break from the blustery Minnesota winter and escape to a warm, Caribbean beach as Seth Stapleton, biologist at the Minnesota Zoo, shares stories of sea turtle conservation work in the West Indies. Learn more about what you can do to help save sea turtles from right here in Minnesota!
