Meet the Author Series at Paragraphs
Thursday Nov 19th 1-3 PM
Book signing, discussion and reception with author, Melissa Gaskill
In A Worldwide Travel Guide to Sea Turtles, a scientist, a conservationist, and a journalist come together to provide a guide to places where people can view sea turtles and participate in authentic conservation projects. Accounts cover parks, reserves, and research sites on five continents, the South Pacific and Caribbean, with details on the sea turtle experience offered as well as options for lodging and other amenities. One chapter covers basic sea turtle biology and threats to their survival, and another, accredited rescue and rehabilitation facilities where sea turtles can be seen in captivity.
