Area of Research:
I am currently studying the effects of egg chamber depth on sea turtle hatching and emergence success. I am working with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Broward County to analyze over ten years of sea turtle hatch data gathered from the Broward County Sea Turtle Conservation Program.
None at this time
I am the current project manager and permit holder of the Broward County Sea Turtle Conservation Program. We survey all Broward County beaches (excluding John U. Lloyd State Park) from March 1st to October 31st to observe, document, and protect sea turtle nests. We also respond to sea turtle strandings and hatchling disorientations.
