OUR CAMPAIGNS RAISE AWARENESS FOR THESE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES
The volunteer program is currently located in Honolulu, Hawaii, U.S.A.
As citizen scientists, volunteers collect information and photos of wild turtles from a distance to contribute to an important research database for conservation. Since the scales on each side of a sea turtle's head is unique like fingerprints of humans, photographs are very helpful in the collection of data for sea turtle conservation management. Read this sea turtle photo-identification research paper for more details. Researchers can use this data to analyze trends and track the distribution and migration activities of sea turtle populations.
