Abstract

Although turtles are well protected by laws in Brazil, the laws are not enforced in some places and ignored in others. Based on 15 years of work in the Rio Negro Basin, we describe the history of turtle exploitation in this region, comment on their current conservation status, and suggest practical conservation alternatives that are necessary to preserve stable populations.
