Description

The Bermuda Turtle Project, a cooperative research and education program by the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, and the Sea Turtle Conservancy. The research efforts of the Bermuda Turtle Project are focused on filling in the information gaps on green turtle biology so that successful protection may be given to these fascinating, vanishing animals. Bermuda is one of a number of locations worldwide where post-pelagic, immature green turtles occur in the complete absence of adults, thus providing scientists and resource managers with a unique opportunity to study the little understood juvenile stage of the green turtle.
