Turtle Summer A Journal for my Daughter


Nature photographer Barbara Bergwerf teams up with N.Y. Times best-selling author Mary Alice Monroe to create this journal, "Turtle Summer," that shares the joys and memories of a turtle team mother and her daughter's turtle summer. While the numbers are actually not known, it is estimated that the survival of sea turtles from hatchlings to adulthood could be as few as 1 out of 1000. Turtle team members do all they can to increase the odds of survival for the eggs laid of "their" beach. They spend their summers watching and caretaking the nests. This award winning children's book takes the reader through a magical turtle summer on the beach.
