SQ Radio: Turtles And Tortoises On The Brink Of Extinction-- Their Fate Is In Our Hands

More than half of the world's turtles and tortoises could be extinct within the next 

15 years, according to a team of 51 scientists from across the world. The team conducted the

most comprehensive study to date of Testudines. Their findings are published in the journal Current Biology, June 22, 2020. Lead author of the study, Craig Stanford, joins SQ Radio to talk about the extinction risks and ways to reverse the decline and save many species of turtles and tortoises.
