I just spent two weeks with marine turtle, acoustics and animal behaviour experts from national and international institutions including  Gettysburg college (USA), Duke University (USA), Chicago Zoological Society (USA), Van Oord (Netherlands), MarBrasil (Brazil), Karumbe (Uruguay), PRICTMA (Argentina), LEC-UFPR (Brazil), and TAMAR (Brazil)  in Paranaguá, Brazil to assess the health and movements of local juvenile green turtle populations and to investigate potential technological solutions for minimising marine turtle interactions with hopper dredging and marine construction projects. This ground-breaking research, funded by Van Oord, will aid in the conservation and management of global marine turtle populations and ensure sustained populations for future generations.
