Turtles may not be as cute as polar bear or Amur leopard cubs, but they are one of the few big animals on reefs and in oceans in which large numbers of people easily vest emotions.

There's an imaginative series of events in the International Year launched yesterday, including a "Turtle Witness Camp" to monitor mass nesting of Olive ridleys in Orissa.
