"Water is the driving force
of all nature."
~ Leonardo da Vinci
Come join the BVI Turtle Research Team for a once in a lifetime experience and help in the ongoing efforts toward sea turtle conservation.
Your day will include information about sea turtles and the marine environment. You'll be taught the best techniques to safely use to catch a turtle. It's then your turn to get into the water and try it yourself! Once a turtle is caught, you'll assist in taking its measurements, after which it will be tagged and micro-chipped. The turtle is then carefully released back into the water where it was captured.
The data collected during your day is recorded and will help the global efforts toward understanding sea turtles and their conservation.
At the end of your experience, you'll have the opportunity to "adopt" any turtles that have been tagged! Visit www.bviark.org for more information about what you can do to help Turtle Conservation.
