CHAPTER 1 Introduction to the Conservation of Pacific Sea Turtles. PAUL DALZELL, PETER H. DUTTON, KITTY M. SIMONDS and DALE SQUIRES.

Published by: University of Hawai'i Press. CHAPTER 1 Introduction to the Conservation of Pacific Sea Turtles. Recovery of Pacific sea turtle populations requires a holistic approach that addresses all sources of mortality. In the Pacific, populations of some species of sea turtles face extinction unless the recent dramatic declines are reversed.

The leatherback sea turtle (Dermochelys coriacea), sometimes called the lute turtle or leathery turtle or simply the luth, is the largest of all living turtles and is the fourth-heaviest modern reptile behind three crocodilians. It is the only living species in the genus Dermochelys and family Dermochelyidae. It can easily be differentiated from other modern sea turtles by its lack of a bony shell, hence the name. Instead, its carapace is covered by skin and oily flesh.

Across the Pacific, populations of some species of sea turtles face extinction unless recent dramatic declines are reversed. The continuing decline of leatherbacks and loggerheads in particular illustrates the limitations of the current gradual and unilateral approach to conservation. Lists with This Book.

Proyecto Laúd coordinates the conservation activities for the leatherback turtle on 4 index beaches of the Mexican Pacific, combining efforts of different government and nongovernment institutions

Although holistic conservation addressing all sources of mortality for endangered species or stocks is the preferred conservation strategy, limited budgets require a criterion to prioritize conservation investments. Proyecto Laúd coordinates the conservation activities for the leatherback turtle on 4 index beaches of the Mexican Pacific, combining efforts of different government and nongovernment institutions. With more than 20 years of tagging and conservation data, this project represents the most solid source of knowledge about the biology and ecology of the leatherback turtle in Mexico.

Across the Pacific, populations of some species of sea turtles face extinction unless recent dramatic declines are reversed. The continuing decline of leatherbacks and loggerheads in particular illustrates the limitations of the current gradual and unilateral approach to conservation. Recovery requires instead a holistic solution that addresses all sources of mortality throughout the entire life history and habitat use of these transnational populations.

Historically conservation efforts have focused on nesting sites to protect eggs and breeding females; mortality from coastal and highseas fisheries was not addressed. In the past five years, these recovery efforts have widened to include rigorously curtailing fishing and technological fixes that lower rates of incidental sea turtle deaths during fishing. Although each of these approaches shows promise, it has become increasingly clear that they alone will not recover severely depleted populations.

Recognizing the urgency of the problem, this book presents ideas and case studies by conservation biologists, economists, marine life policy experts, fishing industry and fisheries professionals, management specialists, and development assistance researchers. It provides a new synthesis and blueprint for action that shifts the paradigm from piecemeal and unilateral conservation to a more holistic and multilateral approach to the recovery of Pacific sea turtle populations.
