All seven species of sea turtles are considered threatened or endangered. Plotting pathways to recovery for sea turtles requires a variety of research techniques, but has a clear synthetic approach. While there are thousands of interesting research questions, only a limited number of these are most germane to recovery. I present here
some key waypoints toward recovery and outline a strategic approach to research that is most likely to get us to our destination quickly, given the critical condition of these species.
