(CNN) -- The third installment of our Going Green series looks at cutting-edge ideas from around the globe.

Once again, Philippe Cousteau brings his expertise to CNN reporting on sea turtle conservation on the east coast of the United States.

The declining population can be traced in part to man-made problems like the fishing industry and pollution. However, a major problem is the destruction of sea turtle nesting grounds by development and coastal erosion.
