Marine turtle conservation research by David Pike has appeared in the latest issue of Biology Letters. The research, which analysed scientific literature from the past 17 years, has shown that coastal development negatively affects loggerhead and green sea turtles by lowering the number of eggs that hatch from each nest. David's work was featured in the Sydney Morning Herald.
