The Man Who Saved Sea Turtles

Oxford University Press

A profound sense of place resonates throughout Carr's writings. Just as he constructed lasting images of Florida, that sense of Florida shaped Carr. No matter how far he traveled, Carr remained devoted to Florida's landscapes and wildlife. In his writings and conservation efforts, Carr worked to preserve the natural history of Florida, including the Everglades, Payne's Prairie, and Lake Alice. As their children reached the age of independence, Marjorie Carr was free to pursue her own passion for conservation. In addition to her important contributions to Archie's research at Tortuguero, she led the fight to save the Ocklawaha. Each of the Carr's five children recalls vibrant conversations around the dinner table about the future of Florida's wildlands and wildlife. Just as their time in Honduras had cemented their relationship, Archie and Marjorie Carr's joint and independent efforts for the conservation of Florida defined their unique relationship and collaboration.
