Dreaming in Turtle
A Journey Through the Passion, Profit, and Peril of Our Most Coveted Prehistoric CreaturesDownloadable Audiobook - 2018
Dreaming in Turtle is a compelling story of a stalwart animal prized from prehistory through to today-an animal threatened by human greed, pragmatism, and rationalization. It stars turtles and shady and heroic human characters both, in settings ranging from luxury redoubts to degraded habitats, during a time when the confluence of easy global trade, limited supply, and inexhaustible demand has accelerated the stress on species. The growth of the middle class in high-population regions like China, where the turtle is particularly valued, feeds this perfect storm into which the turtle finds itself lashed. This is a tale not just of endangered turtles but also one of overall human failings, frailties, and vulnerabilities-all punctuated by optimistic hope for change fueled by dedicated turtle champions.
