Presented By Earthwatch
Goal Help scientists find out where sea turtles thrive.
Task Help scientists protect sea turtle habitats.
Where Cape Eleuthera, Bahamas
Description

The green sea turtle and the hawksbill sea turtle are in trouble. Even though the Bahamian government has made it illegal to catch them in the country’s waters, to save these endangered species from further decline, researchers need to ensure their habitats are protected from coastal development and climate change.
