International Sea Turtle Symposium 2017


The International Sea Turtle Symposium was held in Las Vegas this past April. I attended and presented a poster on some of my current research. You can check out the posterĀ here. It was an invigorating conference and provided a great opportunity to exchange ideas with other researchers. The theme for this year’s conference was climate change, which helped to reinforce some of the directions within my own research program and gave me new ideas for additional work.


Next year’s ISTS will be held in Japan!
