Jonathan Law 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.
Thanks to a generous donation from Empire Fisheries, CFF is pleased to bring our ongoing sea turtle research to the science students at Jonathan Law High School, Milford, CT during the 2019-2020 school year.
April 2019, Dr. Samir Patel presents to students in Mr. Koorejian's Marine Ecology class.
