    Description

    Our turtle heritage is diminishing at a rate outpacing that of other main animal groups. The 2011-Year of the Turtle partnership and campaign is an opportunity to raise awareness for turtles, celebrate our turtle heritage, herald conservation and research successes, and identify gaps in our understanding that can be the focus of future work. We outline seven conservation and research implications of the current turtle crisis, and associated conservation opportunities and actions. If we, the turtle conservation community can accomplish efforts in these selected areas, we can greatly help to sustain species and bolster the recovery of declining turtle species.
