27 February 2014: Blue Ventures' research Sea Turtles Are Endangered, But 42,000 Were Killed Legally Last Year was featured in The Huffington Post 


A new study has found that 42 countries or territories around the world permit the harvest of marine turtles – and estimates that more than 42,000 turtles are caught each year by these fisheries. The research, carried out by Blue Ventures Conservation and staff at the University of Exeter’s Centre for Ecology and Conservation, is the first to comprehensively review the number of turtles currently taken within the law and assess how this compares to other global threats to the creatures.
