Sargassum in the Caribbean: causes, impacts on sea turtles, and management approaches

 

Last month I gave a presentation on the Caribbean Sargassum “invasion.” This is a massive regional issue, and I reviewed the problem and discussed a project assessing its effects on hawksbill nesting. We did our best to film it with a cell phone – and you can check out the resulting video here!
