Join us for a trip to West Palm Beach, May 17-20, 2012, to experience the abundance of sea turtles and learn about sea turtles from Mr. Larry Wood, founder of the Florida Hawksbill Project at the Palm Beach Zoo. The reefs of Palm Beach County are well-known for having lots of sea turtles, especially hawksbills, and SCUBA divers enjoy encounters with them on nearly every dive.
By studying the hawksbills of Florida, the Palm Beach Zoo is contributing to the ongoing effort to recover populations of this critically endangered species. Large-scale, multi-national efforts are underway to stimulate hawksbill conservation, in large part due to their close association with coral reefs. Because they don’t nest with any regularity in Florida, those we encounter here have very likely come from a variety of distant locations in the Caribbean. As a result, the hawksbills being studied in Palm Beach represent a ‘melting pot’ of regional populations, and can provide valuable insight to the biology and conservation of this species.
On this trip, we will learn about the turtles of Palm Beach with Mr. Wood, and support turtle research and conservation.
