Meine Reise mit den Meeresschildkröten

Wie ich als Meeresbiologin für unsere Ozeane kämpfe

My Journey with Sea Turtles

How I fight for our oceans as a marine biologist

Of one who went forth to save sea turtles

They glide elegantly through the water, cover thousands of kilometres and years later still find their way to the beaches of their birth. Sea turtles are fascinating prehistoric creatures, and Christine Figgener has long advocated their study and protection.

Expert knowledge of a dedicated marine biologist

Now she takes us on a journey through the lives of these animals and through her own. She impressively tells of the search for nesting females on Caribbean beaches at night or of swaying boat trips on the Pacific and describes the dangers to which both turtles and turtle researchers are exposed. Above all, however, she conveys her great love for these creatures and is infectious with her enthusiasm and passion.

"Meine Reise mit den Meeresschildkröten" will be published first in German by Malik on March 30th, 2023.

The English version will be published by Greystone Books and available in 2024.
