Crittercam Sea Turtle Study May Aid Conservation

Sea turtles around the world are on a slippery slope toward extinction, but in Shark Bay, on the remote coast of Western Australia, two species of the ocean-dwelling reptiles thrive among a flourishing diversity of life.

“Shark Bay gives us a glimpse of what other marine habitats might have been like before they were changed by people,” said Mike Heithaus, a marine biologist at Florida International University in Miami.
