Turtle Tagging Fun
Have you ever wanted to get up close and personal with a sea turtle? Here's your chance! Marine biologists and students at the University of the Virgin Islands' Center for Marine and Environmental Studies will host a turtle talk and tagging workshop.
Designed for the whole family, an adult-focused presentation will discuss current and ongoing sea turtle related research and conservation efforts undertaken by CMES faulty and MMES students. A second presentation, given simultaneously, will be youth-oriented and discuss sea turtle biology and conservation within the Territory.
Live Sea Turtles!
Sea turtles ready to be tagged are brought onshore so participants can witness the entire tagging process and ask questions.
Last but not least, lights refreshments and arts and crafts will round out the day.
