About This Project
What are the toxic and ecological effects of marine plastic pollution to sea turtles? This research aims to combine plastic pollution and sea turtle density data to develop a risk assessment model to communicate and address the ecologic and toxic risks faced by Pacific sea turtles. Student scientists and professors will continue data collection and beach cleanups in sea turtle habitat, studying and protecting critically endangered marine life.
