New study shows global sea turtle recovery

An analysis of 299 nesting sites of all seven sea-turtle species found turtle-nest numbers had significantly increased at 95 sites, versus 35 that showed a significant decrease.

The study by an international team of scientists and published today inĀ Science Advances, analysed data taken over an average of 16.2 years, including from waters off Australia, Africa, North and South America, and Asia.
