Summary
Across the globe, the seven species of sea turtles face a number of human-induced threats (including fisheries by-catch, direct harvesting, coastal development, pollution, pathogens, and climate change), that are adversely affecting their health and persistence.

Challenge
Collaborate with a group of international conservation partners working on the ground around the world to document the ecology of the seven species of sea turtles while using specific locations as exemplars that address the threats facing these species and the people behind the conservation efforts abating them.

Solution
Join forces with sea turtle experts and Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, a world renowned marine biologist, and travel to more than a dozen locations to document the plight of sea turtles around the world. Publish the new imagery in a series of stories for SWOT Reports (The State of the World’s Sea Turtles).
