    About This Project

    Tecolutla Turtle Preservation Project
    The presence of shell abnormalities in turtles can be an indicator of poor health. Their causes can stem from high incubation temperatures, low genetic diversity, and pollution. This project will examine the prevalence of shell abnormalities in hatchlings of the critically endangered Kemp's Ridley sea turtle at an important nesting beach in Tecolutla, Veracruz, Mexico.
    Blast off!
