Falmouth High School Turtle Tagging Project

The United States Mid-Atlantic region is an important foraging ground for sea turtles, but relatively little is known about these protected animals due to complications involved with locating and capturing the immature and adult turtles on these offshore foraging grounds.

CFF is pleased to bring our ongoing collaborative research to the science students at Falmouth High School during the 2019-2020 school year.
