Archie Carr (1909-1987) was an American herpetologist, ecologist and conservationist. He taught zoology at the University of Florida, and he was a leading authority on sea turtles. The Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge in Florida is named for him. This refuge protects the nesting sites of nearly one-fourth of all sea turtles in the United States.
