Dr Carla Eisemberg

A Charles Darwin University ecologist has joined 50 experts with the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Specialist Group to publish the most comprehensive study of the extinction risks for turtles and tortoises.

While the research published in Current Biology states that more than half of all 360 turtle and tortoise species face imminent extinction, the paper’s authors present recommendations to reverse the decline and save many species.

CDU’s Dr Carla Eisemberg is the IUCN red list (threatened species) coordinator for the Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Specialist Group and is responsible for coordinating the decisions about the worldwide status of species.
