"Magnificent . . . A pleased, hopeful publication. Safina provides us plentiful purposes to be enthralled by means of this miraculous old animal―and abundant purposes to care."

As Carl Safina's compelling usual heritage event makes transparent, the destiny of the leatherback turtle is in our arms. The distressing decline of those old sea turtles in Pacific waters and their superb restoration within the Atlantic remove darkness from the results―both confident and negative―of our interventions and the teachings that may be utilized, globally, to revive the oceans and their creatures.
We accompany award-winning usual background professional Safina and his colleagues as they song leatherbacks around the world's oceans and onto distant shorelines of each continent, together with an exciting trip from Monterey, California, to nesting grounds in Papua, New Guinea. all through, in his peerless prose, Safina captures the fragile interplay among those mild giants and the people who're enjoying an important position of their survival.
