An endangered Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle named Catherine holds a special place in the hearts of researchers with the Georgia Southern University Sea Turtle Program at St. Catherines Island. Researchers rescued the four-year-old turtle that had swallowed a fishing hook this summer and assisted in her recovery and recent release back into her natural habitat. For nearly 30 years, the program has been making strides in sea turtle conservation efforts along the Georgia Coast.
Georgia Southern University Professors Daniel Gleason, Ph.D. and Risa Cohen, Ph.D., team up with Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary and the Georgia DNR to track the dispersal of materials from the Altamaha River in the Atlantic Ocean.
