In-water Surveys of Marine Turtles at Glover’s Reef Marine Reserve, September 2007

Posted on 15 May 2009  | 
The in-water survey team was comprised of up to five WCS staff, six Belize Fisheries staff, and a local resident assisted during one afternoon.

The weather, particularly high wind, and resulting water conditions provided some challenges to the September survey effort.

In addition, some invertebrates that sting/bite and cause irritation to snorkellers were abundant in some areas. Despite these conditions in-water surveys were conducted from 24 – 27 September 2007.

New participants were trained in measuring,weighing, and collecting tissue samples, and for repeat participants methods presented in April 2007 were reinforced.
