Abstract: "This special issue of Conservation & Society focuses on sea turtles and their conservation, from vaious social science perspectives. While there are other collections of papers devoted to sea turtle conservation from non-biological perspectives, and some of the individual contributions are by social scientists, the present issue is timely, distinct, and valuable, for two reasons. First, social science has come of age in the sea turtle research and conservation community.... Second, an issue featuring social science research on sea turtles and their conservation is about much more than sea turtles. Sea turtle conservation provides a platform from which researchers can ask questions of interest to a broad audience concerned with the human aspects of wildlife conservation."
