STAR Center at Southeast Regional Sea Turtle Meeting


STAR Center staffers Amber White and Madeleine VanMiddlesworth recently attended the Southeast Regional Sea Turtle Meeting in Myrtle Beach, SC where they learned about sea turtle conservation research and current rehabilitation practices being conducted in the region. The pair even gave a presentation on training happening in the STAR Center with Fin, a Kemp’s ridley sea turtle, who transitioned from patient to species ambassador. Fin has problems eating due to injuries to his/her jaw and eyes, and the training is key to ensuring that Fin gets his/her entire diet.
