Through satellite telemetry, researchers have discovered patterns of migratory behavior of long-lived imperiled sea turtles. In this presentation, Dr. Hart and Andrew Crowder will highlight movement patterns of satellite-tracked sea turtles that Dr. Hart’s team have captured both on land (i.e., on nesting beaches) and in the water over the last decade in southeast US national parks and protected areas.

Speakers:
Dr. Hart is a USGS Research Ecologist with 22 years of research experience on the ecology, population biology, and conservation of aquatic and semi-aquatic reptiles.

Mr. Crowder is a USGS Wildlife Biologist with over 20 years in the marine conservation field at the state and federal level. He has been with Dr. Hart’s team for 10 years.
