Sea Turtle Research in Abaco

Beth Whitman, in picture, is a Ph. D candidate at Florida International University and is currently setting up a long-term seagrass exclosure project along the coastline of Great Abaco, The Bahamas. This is only one of many of her projects where she is looking into the behaviour and ecology of sea turtles. Sea turtle reserach  is very important right now in the Bahamas as of 2009 there has been a national band to the harvesting of sea turtle for personal and commercial consumption. 

In the picture provided, she is setting up her first site in North Abaco for her seagrass exclosure cages where she will be able to quantify sea turtle grazing effects.
