(p.249) CHAPTER 11 Conclusion
The Man Who Saved Sea Turtles

Frederick Rowe Davis

Oxford University Press

Carr's career demonstrated that the naturalist tradition transformed into related disciplines of ecology and conservation over the course of the 20th century. Carr's life exhibits many dimensions of the naturalist tradition. Nearly a decade after Carr died, his example inspired an intense response to an editorial in the journal Conservation Biology. Inspired by the publication of A Naturalist in Florida, editor Reed Noss lamented the demise of natural history and field biology. During the course of his career, Archie Carr embodied E. O. Wilson's goals for the naturalist tradition and conservation biology in his passion for natural history, his acumen for systematics, his sense for ecology, his dedication to conservation, and his ability to write narratives that captured the hearts and minds of scientists and the public in all of these realms. The story of the man who saved sea turtles should be an inspiration to future generations of naturalists and conservationists.
