Urban Sea Turtles

Urban wildlife isn’t just on land, especially in the world’s biggest port cities. In this episode we hear about what happens when turtles navigate the urban/ocean interface. We hear from Umair Shahid from WWF Pakistan about Karachi’s sea turtles, Dr. Russell Burke from Hofstra University talks about the diamondback terrapins (brackish water turtles) of New York, and Cassandra Davis¬†of the Aquarium of the Pacific¬†talks about the green sea turtles of the channelized San Gabriel River in Long Beach, CA. Matt Halley joins us as guest host and reminds listeners that he and other ornithologists would love to get their hands on dead birds you find on the sidewalk.
