Summary

Sea turtles belong to the most ancient line of living reptiles. However, there is a lack of up-to-date information on the regional status and conservation efforts of sea turtles on the subcontinent. Addressing this gap, Marine Turtles of the Indian Subcontinent documents the results of surveys carried out under the Sea Turtle project sponsored by the Indian government and the United Nations. With contributions from leading experts from a variety of disciplines, the book provides up-to-date information on the regional status and conservation efforts of sea turtles on the subcontinent. The book records the status of sea turtles along the east and west coasts of the Indian mainland, the Lakshaweep archipelago, and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and surveys their status in Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.
