The Man Who Saved Sea Turtles

Early in life, Carr developed an appreciation of nature through his own initiative and through hunting and fishing trips with his father. Carr's interest in natural history and herpetology evolved at the University of Florida, where a dedicated group of professors taught the scientific method and emphasized the relationship between humans and nature while encouraging organismal studies of Florida taxa. Beyond Carr's passion for field work in Florida and his courses with a dedicated group of professors, he benefited considerably from correspondence with several established herpetologists in America. In combination, Carr's childhood hunting trips, formal university study, and extensive correspondence with American herpetologists provided him with a strong background to begin his career as an instructor at the University of Florida.
