Chapter Summary

This chapter lays out facts about sea turtles that are generally held by international scientists. It provides a background from which more people will be able to understand the challenges surrounding the protection of sea turtles from extinction. The chapter begins with a discussion of general sea turtle biology, followed by a summary of each of the natural and anthropogenic threats facing sea turtles and current "solutions" used to address these threats. It then brings the science together and lays out the central debate at issue in the Shrimp-Turtle dispute, analyzing the impact of this science on the World Trade Organization (WTO) Shrimp-Turtle decisions. The WTO Dispute Settlement Body recently began to consult experts to assist them in understanding the often complex science at the center of today's trade disputes.

Keywords: dispute settlement body; sea turtle biology; Shrimp-Turtle dispute; World Trade Organization (WTO)
