Abstract:
Tracking the movements of sea turtles can be difficult. It is especially difficult to track male turtles because once they hatch and go to the ocean; they don’t come back onto land. There is some known information on female sea turtles though and from that scientists hope to learn more.

Abstract:
Sea turtles get caught in fishermen’s nets all the time. However, a new device is being designed to fit onto a fisherman’s net that will sort out any heavy objects, such as a sea turtle, and push it through a trap door in the bottom of the net. This is expected to save many turtles from being trapped and killed by the nets.

The ritual of a mother sea turtle has been described as almost magical. From the lumbering out of the sea to the digging of the nest, the mother turtle dutifully does her task until the eggs are lain and the nest is hidden.

Abstract:
In years past, coastal Carolinians enjoyed traditional sea turtle egg hunts on the full moon in June. The full moon would illuminate tracks left on the beach by female turtles returning to the water after laying their eggs. Egg hunts were primarily social events carried out by groups competing to find the most eggs, which would be used as an ingredient in old-fashioned corn bread. Ocean front development and protective laws have combined to render the once eagerly anticipated event a distant memory.
