I sit down with Christine Figgener today to discuss #SeaTurtleWeek that started on June 8th and ends on June 16th. There is a coordinated effort by sea turtle practitioners all over the world to create awareness for the 7 species of Sea Turtles on the planet. 

Christine tells us her story of how she became interested in Marine Conservation, specifically Sea Turtles and how she got into science communication (scicomm).

I have the pleasure to have a good friend of mine on the podcast, Dr. Nathan Robinson. You might remember Nathan as the researcher that pulled out the plastic straw from the Olive Ridley Sea Turtles in Costa Rica in the famous You Tube video. He's also the same guy to pull out the plastic fork from a different Olive Ridley Sea Turtle four months later about 70 km south of the first incident. 

Today, Nathan joins me to discuss a new study on Green Sea Turtles off the coast of Cape Eleuthra Island, Bahamas. The behavioural study is identifying trends and variations in behaviour of individuals among habitats and other Sea Turtles.

Enjoy the Podcast!!!

Sea Turtle populations are endangered for all 7 species and there are groups working very hard to ensure their survival; however, a summer red tide event in Southwest Florida is causing high mortality on Sea Turtles that are way above the normal mortality rates for these species. 

The average number of Sea Turtle deaths in one year in the Southwest Florida area in 30-35; however, conservation groups have already collected 53 sea turtles in June and July alone (in the Sannibel Island area). 

There seems to be no end in sight as the red tide season usually occurs during the winter, where cool water from the mainland breaks up the red tide blooms. The current bloom won't be broken up by cool water as it is summer and practitioners are worried that the red tide could last until the winter. 

Sometimes, we have to deal with bad news...not my favourite part of the job.

One of the great things about the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group is that people who are facing marine science and conservation problems can post in the group and other people (scientists/conservationists) can provide some advice best on past experiences and their expertise in the subject matter.

A recent post by a member named Emma provided a similar opportunity for advice to be given by other members in the group.

The organization for which Emma volunteers posted a graphic photo of an injured loggerhead sea turtle that was trying to nest and lay her eggs, but was hit by a boat propeller before she got to the beach. The turtle died of her injuries before she could get to the beach and lay her eggs. 

Emma was searching for advice from other members of the group as to how the organization can move forward with this issue. Ideally, the organization would want to stop the motorized water sports from occurring during nesting season; however, the industry needs to make money within 6 months to survive for the entire year; therefore, stopping the water sport activities may be futile. 

Dr. Edd Hind-Ozan and Loch Land offered a few suggestions that seemed like the proper avenue to take. 

Listen to the podcast to find out what those avenues are.
