About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

Five species of sea turtles and eight species of freshwater turtles have been recorded in Costa Rica. All sea turtles are endangered and two of the freshwater species populations have been reduced, mainly due to poaching, being caught as pets, illegal trade, and the destruction and pollution of their habitats.

This laminated bilingual sheet is a simple guide for identifying all 13 turtle species living in Costa Rica. It includes a full-color illustration of each species, its scientific and common names, and drawings on how their shell plates are disposed, their comparative sizes, distribution maps, and conservation categories.
