Saving Sea Turtles in Hainan

Frederick Yeh is an American-Chinese biomedical engineer who was driven into conservation work on a trip back to Hainan to visit family. He had happy memories of Hainan’s Sea Turtles from early childhood, but was shocked to discover that locals – who were hard up against the realities of a struggling fishing industry – were selling the turtles and no one was doing anything about it.

Check out the report by Jennifer Dunn in Hainan:
