The effort to save the turtle is a “successful case of global protection”(Mysterious Earth uux.cn reports) According to EurekAlert!: Efforts to save sea turtles are a “successful case of global protection”: evidence from new research on seven sea turtles around the world indicates that their overall number is Increased (this is different from many endangered vertebrates), thanks to years of protective measures that play a key role in the recovery of sea turtles (and even small turtles). Turtles have historically experienced a decline in population numbers, including accidental capture and harvesting of adult turtles and turtle eggs. Since the 1950s, the reduction in sea turtles has led to global conservation measures, including strict catch regulations and protection of beaches.
To examine the current state of the global sea turtle, Antonios Mazaris and colleagues studied 4417 annual sea turtle nesting abundance estimates based on specific time periods for nesting data collection, and their lengths ranged from 6-47 years. They used 2010 or later estimates to assess the regional management units of each turtle (these units represent discrete nesting locations within a particular region that differ from each other by genetics, distribution, movement, and demographics). The length of time required to detect significant changes in nesting abundance was detected; they found that the majority of sea turtle populations increased (the number of 95 populations increased significantly, while the number significantly decreased by 35 populations). Despite the encouraging increase in the number of sea turtle populations, Mazaris’s results only complement the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) assessment of sea turtle status, which lists six species of sea turtles as endangered.
