Explores the leatherback sea turtle's natural history and recounts the efforts being made by scientists trying to save them. Dr. Kimberly Stetwart, also known as the Turtle Lady of St. Kitts, is already waiting at midnight when an 800-pound leatherback sea turtle crawls out of the Caribbean surf and onto the sandy beach. The mother turtle has a vital job to do: dig a nest in which she will lay eggs that will hatch into part of the next generation of leatherbacks. With only one in a thousand of the eggs for this critically endangered species resulting in an adult sea turtle, the odds are stacked against her and her offspring. Join the renowned author and photographer Steve Swinburne on a journey through history to learn how sea turtles came to be endangered, and what scientists like Kimberly are doing to save them.… (més)

This book talks about a handful of scientists in St. Kitts who work together to gain information and help the leatherback sea turtles in the area. This book touches on the history of the organization and the scientific process that they go through with tagging the turtles, counting and helping the eggs, and tracking the turtles as they travel and migrate. It shows pictures and charts of sea turtles and also has a lot of environmentalist tones and talks a lot about conservation organizations and the threats against sea turtles. I would not use this as a science supplement for any specific unit but would possibly keep it in my classroom library and use it as a visual for talking about endangered species or about saving the ocean and the environment to protect humans and animals. I did like how it talked about the island coming together as a community to clean the beaches and raise money to help save the sea turtles and I like showing the kids ways they can work together to learn about endangered species and all the work that scientists and community members do to preserve these amazing animals.

This book is about sea turtles. The information in the book talks about the different types of sea turtles as well as their behavior, their habitats, and their life cycles. The book also provides information about how sea turtles are endangered and what children can do to help the turtles. ( )

This book tells about the leatherback sea turtle, its life of endangerment, the story of how they became an endangered species, and what is being done to protect them. It has real life photographs that kids will love, drawings and information about their story from the past, and the story of the scientist and scientists who are working to preserve sea turtles. I love that this book tells kids about how they can get involved in saving sea turtles. I would teach this as the first of a unit on wildlife preservation, or reptiles.

This book details the work of Dr. Kimberly Stewart who started a sea turtle monitoring program on St. Kitts, an island in the Caribbean. This book highlights the conservation efforts of Dr. Stewart who works primarily with the endangered Leatherback sea turtles. It details the life cycle of the Leatherback sea turtle which helps to explain why the species is endangered. This book also discusses the history of sea turtle harvesting by humans and the modern decline of all seven species of sea turtles that currently swim in Earth's oceans. Finally it provides practical methods that the every day person could follow to help save endangered species, not only sea turtles.

This book would be a useful resource when discussing Ecology, Conservation, and Endangered Species. This book would be most useful in a unit that focuses on the unique needs and qualities of aquatic ecosystems. It does not necessarily connect to information New Orleans area students have already learned about wetland ecosystems, but students could be encouraged to find out the conservation needs of their own local environment and create a plan that models Dr. Stewart's efforts. This book could tie in with aquatic biology knowledge many American students have already learned from watching the Disney-Pixar movie "Finding Nemo." For grades 6-12 it would be a useful resource if students were doing independent research. For grade 3-5 some assistance from an adult would help make consequences of human impact on sea turtle species more accessible. It could also be used as resource material for reports on any of the seven species of sea turtles. ( )

"'One egg out of a thousand will produce an adult sea turtle.' So says Dr. Kimberly Stewart." (vii) Swinburne sets the stage with that provocative fact and then details the work of Dr. Stewart both with the sea turtles themselves and also with the community of St. Kitts, where people's livelihoods depended on catching sea turtles. Swinburne captures the delicate balance that Stewart faced between her drive to preserve a species and yet respect the traditions of a culture. As always in the Scientist in the Field series books, the book shows the work of the scientist behind the facts that we know about sea turtles. ( )
