"Magnificent . . . A cheerful, hopeful ebook. Safina offers us considerable purposes to be enthralled by means of this striking old animal―and abundant purposes to care."
―Los Angeles Times

As Carl Safina's compelling traditional heritage event makes transparent, the destiny of the leatherback turtle is in our palms. The distressing decline of those historic sea turtles in Pacific waters and their awesome restoration within the Atlantic light up the results―both confident and negative―of our interventions and the teachings that may be utilized, globally, to revive the oceans and their creatures.

We accompany award-winning traditional heritage professional Safina and his colleagues as they tune leatherbacks around the world's oceans and onto distant shorelines of each continent, together with an exciting trip from Monterey, California, to nesting grounds in Papua, New Guinea. all through, in his peerless prose, Safina captures the fragile interplay among those light giants and the people who're taking part in an important function of their survival.
