Marine park managers throughout Belize are conducting the 1st Annual In-Water Sea Turtle Survey as part of the Belize Turtle Watch Program's Annual Sea Turtle Census.
Biologists and fishermen are working together to conduct scientific surveys along reefs throughout Belize and capture, measure, tag and release turtles encountered during surveys.
The program builds on training received by many of the marine park staff at Wildlife Conservation Society at their biannual In-Water Turtle Monitoring Program at Glover's Atoll.
We'll be sure to present you with more details on these studies!
Check back each week for new updates on our activities and reports shared by volunteers in the field!
