In this episode, we hear from another one of my heroes, John Richards of Loggerhead Acres Turtle Farm. John has probably done more to save alligator snapping turtles than anyone else in history. These turtles were in a bad way, being commercially harvested for Campbell's turtle soup and for the turtle meat market when John stepped in and saved over 1,000 adults from the market and began reproducing them for conservation and for the turtle hobby. The more people became educated about these beautiful beasts, the less they wanted to eat them and the more they wanted to study them.
