Source: (10 Dec. 2011)
By the time the 31st Annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology & Conservation is convened in 2011, this annual event will have spanned 4 continents, 6 countries, and touched the lives of thousands of participants. Indeed, the Symposium has reached out to a broad range of sea turtle enthusiasts over the years, including researchers, conservation practitioners, educators, industry, and the general public. Back in the United States for the first time in 4 years, the 31st Symposium will continue this tradition and for the first time will be held on the U.S. West Coast, in San Diego, California.

Central to the Symposium will be a mix of Poster and Oral Sessions that will include mix of traditional topics and current events pertinent in the U.S. such as the recent sea turtle cold-stunning event in the southeastern U.S., and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

In addition to the main meeting, numerous regional meetings and thematic workshops will be conducted during the two days prior to the main Symposium (Sun-Mon, 10-11 April 2011).
