The threats to the world's sea turtle populations have created poignant images and bitter debates, the most publicized being that involving shrimpers, conservationists, the National Marine Fisheries Service, and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service over the controversial turtle excluder devices. Other threats to the sea turtle species are those that also affect other parts of the marine ecosystem, such as plastic wastes in the seas. Decline of the Sea Turtles explores these threats in detail to provide sound, scientific conclusions on which dangers are greatest fascinating and informative overview of sea turtle species – Kemp's ridley, leatherback, hawksbill, green turtle, and loggerhead.
