SEA TURTLES AND THEIR PROTECTORS

Book - 2010
Rate this:

As you will discover in Tracks in the Sand , the volunteer group known as The Turtle Patrol is not just a funny name--it's a tradition, a band of hundreds of Floridians who monitor their backyard beaches every summer in the name of sea turtle conservation and protection. These enthusiasts are passionate, eccentric, and absolutely unique, a culture entirely unto itself. This is their story, tinted green and gliding through the waves.

Tracks in the Sand is the profile of a state's rich coastal heritage and a showcase of its characters. Detailed with photography mined from decades of volunteer work, and fascinating in-depth personal portraits, it combines science with a poetic sense of insight uncharacteristic of the nature genre. More than just a book on turtles, this is a story about people, passion, and purpose--turtles just happen to be the bond to tie all of those things together.
