The Annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation is a unique event that draws participants from around the world, from across disciplines and cultures to a common interest and objective: the conservation of sea turtles and their environment. The Symposium encourages discussion, debate, and the sharing of knowledge, research techniques and lessons in conservation, to address questions on the biology and conservation of sea turtles and their habitats.
This year’s Symposium Theme is “Climate Change”. As per NASA’s very recent announcement, this past June was the 14th consecutive month of record heat for the globe (http://www.noaa.gov/june-marks-14-consecutive-months-record-heat-globe). What does this mean for sea turtles? How is this projected to impact us all? We are looking forward to great contributions and discussions.
