Tourism versus turtles



Tourism versus turtles



The law of the mother: protecting indigenous peoples in protected areas: 186-193



The chapter discusses the problems that nature can have when faced with competition from tourism development. It uses the case study of the Greek island of Zakynthos where 50% of the Mediterranean's loggerhead turtles swim ashore to lay their eggs. The chapter discusses the actions taken by the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece (STPS), which has been working on the island since 1982 in an attempt to monitor and protect the turtles.
