This past week was a week of informative and inspiring turtles talks! I had the opportunity to attend the Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (WIDECAST) conference and then attended the International Sea Turtle Symposium (ISTS). It was a week filled with new sea turtle research and initiatives being done around the world.
The ISTS was held virtually from Australia. Next year it is hopefully to be held in-person again in Cartagena, Colombia. It was nice to still be able to connect virtually but a trip to Cartagena next year sounds appealing! I think travelling is on everyone's mind now that things are starting to feel normal again.
I am feeling very inspired and motivated as we get closer and closer to the beginning of our nesting season!
