Conservation efforts are unlikely to become successful in the long run if public opinion is not actively sought and obtained. Realizing this, the marine turtle conservation program of the World Wildlife Fund-India (Eastern Region) has started its campaign to reach out to the masses. An illustrated pamphlet published by the WWF-I in Bengali is being distributed among the prospective consumers of turtles in the many markets of West Bengal, requesting them to abstain from buying turtle meat or eggs. Another publication is the book, Indian Turtles: A Field Guide, which describes all the 36 species and subspecies of turtles so far recorded from India. Besides creating an interest and awareness in this group of reptiles and providing information on their biology and status, the field guide can be used in the enforcement of the Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act of 1972.
