Dear list


I have been asked to provide advice to a government department on the
advisability of allowing tourists to watch/participate in the release of
turtle hatchlings from nurseries. 


Is there any research on this topic? Impact on turtle behaviour or life
expectancy? Any "best practice" available, or is it a simple "do not allow"?
Grateful for any papers/research/case studies or other advice.


Many thanks, and regards,


Julian Hyde
