Atlantic Marine Conservation Society’s biologists bring the world of sea turtles to you. Our lecture is designed to introduce participants to the seven species of sea turtles with focus on the four species we commonly see in New York. We will discuss common threats sea turtles face in our environment such as cold-stunning, fisheries interactions, and marine debris ingestion. By the end of the lecture participants will understand our species of sea turtles and be able to apply concepts taught in their environment. The lecture will conclude with an open-ended discussion to touch base on any questions the lecture may not have addressed, followed by a beach cleanup.
