The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute [BUEI] will present “Nesting Sea Turtles” by Dr. Mark Outerbridge as part of the BUEI Talks series on Thursday, March 17.
The event poster says, “Bermuda once had a thriving sea turtle nesting colony, however years of targeted hunting by humans caused this rookery to collapse. Dr. Mark Outerbridge, Wildlife Ecologist for the Department of Conservation Services, will present facts and videos about the history of sea turtle nesting on Bermuda’s beaches.
“The audience will also be given the opportunity to participate in a beach monitoring programme.”
The presentation will get underway on Thursday, March 17 at 7.30pm, with a Sushi Happy Hour to be held at Harbourfront from 5.00pm to 6.30pm, with dinner opening at 6.00pm.
Tickets cost $20 for members and $25 for non-members, and are available by calling 294-0204 or visiting BUEI’s Oceans Gift Shop.
