Inaugural Southeast Regional Sea Turtle Meeting
According to SERSTN president, Kim Sonderman, “The year 2010 proved to be a challenging year for our turtles. A massive cold-stunning event in Florida was very quickly followed by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The consequences from both of these events might be felt for years to come and spurred us even more to create a meeting where research scientists, students, conservationists, volunteers and sea turtle enthusiasts could disseminate research to colleagues and identify future research needs.”
The meeting will bring together researchers and volunteer citizen scientists from Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. Those interested in attending are invited to visit SERSTN at http://iconferences.seaturtle.org/serstm/ as well as their Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Southeast-Regional-Sea-Turtle-Meeting/200005523366056.
