"Seagrass meadows are being lost globally at unprecedented rates. Yet what we know about the consequences of this loss and its relationship with charismatic megafauna such as Sea Turtles is surprisingly limited. In this issue recent research is discussed that has sought to provide further understanding to the inter-relationship of Sea Turtles with seagrass.

The loss of seagrass in the Great Barrier Reef region due to cyclones and flooding has had evident impacts upon Sea Turtles. This issue describes the efforts of many volunteers and scientists to help save these turtles and how turtles undergo dietary shifts throughout their development that may help them survive this loss."
