Turtle Talk 101 (Zoom)
Turtle Talk 101 Zoom presentations are free and open to the public.
The slide presentation is an introduction to sea turtles and includes a basic overview of the sea turtle species with concentration on species that commonly nest on the Brevard County beaches. The presentation also examines the causes of sea turtle population declines and the ongoing laws in effect to protect and prevent them from becoming extinct.
