The World's Sea Turtles on a Map
I've been looking for a map of all the turtle nesting locations in the world, because I thought a link to that would be a nice, fun, easy post for the turtle nesting season. It turns out, such things are not so easy to find. However, this map entitled The State of the World's Sea Turtles is pretty darn close and will likely continue to develop into an even more comprehensive source. I wish they showed both the common and scientific names for each species, but either way it has an amazing amount of data on the number of female turtles at each site and how many laid eggs (clutches) there. Pokey and I highly recommend you head over and check it out.
