New data about Bermuda’s sea turtles, including research tracing the journey of young animals from Bermuda to foreign shores, is to be presented at an upcoming talk.
Bermuda Turtle Project co-ordinator Jennifer Gray will host the talk at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute on March 26.
She told The Royal Gazette: “The talk will cover the amazing history of sea turtle research and how it has influenced the region. I’ll be including all the new discoveries we have found through high tech tools. We have had our first recorded cases of sea turtles that grew up in Bermuda successfully reaching a nesting beach overseas and reproducing. I think there has only been one previous case of a turtle being followed from its immature status to a successful reproducing.”
