Dr. Henry Hildebrand was a marine biologist who taught at Texas A&M University in Kingsville and Corpus Christi, and did field research in the coastal waters of south Texas, eastern Mexico, and elsewhere. He was a noted expert on sea turtles, shrimp, blue crab, oysters, sharks, and red tide. Here he discusses the decline of the Kemp's Ridley sea turtle, which he attributes to egg-collecting in Mexico, and shrimp-trawling in the Gulf of Mexico.
