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