Field work is at the heart of sea turtle research and conservation. Only through the passion, time, and energy devoted by those working on the ground can data be collected, beaches monitored, and local conservation strategies devised. The more people who get involved, digging their elbows deep in the sand and saltwater, the more likely we are to succeed.
