About this book

Global sea-turtle populations have dwindled significantly over the past 500 years and, for the past 50 years, biologists and conservationists all over the world have endeavoured to save them.

South Africa has played an active role in this, protecting its own sea-turtle populations and researching turtle populations in neighbouring countries. An early pioneer in conservation techniques, South Africa has assisted many countries and researchers, and the sea turtles of south-east Africa are now extensively protected, with positive signs of recovery.

Between the Tides: In Search of Sea Turtles tells this remarkable story, as seen through the eyes of the author, whose interest in sea-turtle research has taken him all over the world and involved him in exciting expeditions, scientific controversy, political unrest, the companionshiop of wonderful people both scientific and conservationist, and survival by sheer luck. His lasting reward has been his association with beautiful beaches and the wonderful family of sea turtles.
