NATURALIST 101: GENETIC TOOLS FOR SEA TURTLE CONSERVATION
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7 • 7:00 PM (EST)
Call it Ancestry DNA for sea turtles. For more than a decade, Dr. Brian Shamblin with UGA’s Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources has worked with partners across the Southeast to create a genetic database that helps researchers better understand turtles’ nesting habits and relationships. This innovative project isn’t just connecting generations of nesting turtles: it’s also creating a legacy for the future and continued recovery of loggerhead sea turtle populations.
Join us on for our FREE Naturalist 101 lecture with Dr. Shamblin. Come hear what scientists have learned to date and what’s next in the cutting-edge field of sea turtle genetics. Please RSVP so we can plan accordingly!
