  Title The dark side of light. Light pollution kills leatherback turtle hatchlings Type Journal Article
  Year 2012 Publication Biodiscovery Abbreviated Journal Biodiscovery  
  Volume 3 Issue Pages e8930  
  Keywords Leatherback turtle; animals; reptiles; turtles; marine turtles; light pollution; Tobago  
  Abstract The leatherback turtle is the largest and most migratory of all sea turtles and deepest diving air-breathing animal. It has unique physiology which allows it to adapt to various habitats ranging from sub-polar to equatorial during its migrations. The leatherback turtle is also the only sea turtle where no cases of tumours have been diagnosed. These unique features add to the arguments for preservation of this endangered species. Here we discuss the effect of light pollution on leatherback turtle hatchlings in Tobago and the measures for their protection.
