Children's LiteratureThis book is part of Firefly's "Animal Rescue" series that explores the need for conservation efforts of particular species. A solid introduction to the history of turtles, their habitats, and the major threats to the survival of the species are supported with a variety of focused looks at particular scientists and organizations throughout the world committed to turtle conservation efforts. Different areas of the world are covered, with a spotlight on particular conservation efforts in each geographic area ("On the Frontlines") and a feature on a scientist working in that region ("At Work"). Color photographs throughout graphically illustrate both the beauty of turtles and the devastation predators and people have caused. Supporting information includes a "Fast Facts" section, which gives factoids about turtles; "How You Can Help," which lists organizations and links for more information about turtle conservation; and an index. A good resource for school and public libraries. 2005, Firefly Books, Ages 10 to 13.
