The Giant Turtles of Yalimapo
In French Guiana, leatherback turtles—the largest sea turtles in the world—return to the same beach multiple times over the year to lay their eggs. But fewer are making it back, threatening the species with extinction. Researchers have been tracking and monitoring them to better understand the increasing anthropogenic and environmental pressures on their ecosystem.
