The Annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation, hosted every year by the International Sea Turtle Society (ISTS), is a unique event that draws participants from around the world, from across disciplines and cultures to a common interest and objective: the conservation of sea turtles and their environment. The Symposium encourages discussion, debate, and the sharing of knowledge, research techniques and lessons in conservation to address questions on the biology and conservation of sea turtles and their habitats. The 34th Annual Symposium will be held on 10-17 April 2014 in the City of New Orleans, Louisiana.
I recently recieved my M.A. in Marine Conservation and Policy and would like to attend the Symposium to try and seek out research opportunities and make connections that will enable me to pursue my goal of working as a conservation biologist protecting sea turtles.
Please help me reach my goal. The funds will cover conference registration fees, travel to and from New Orleans, hotel accomodations, food, and business cards.
Thank you in advance! Your support is invaluable and greatly appreciated.
