Sea Turtle Talks
An ISTS Virtual Event
Thank you to everyone who participated in 2021 the Sea Turtle Talks virtual events! If you were not able to participate in any of the events, you can access links to Twitter Talks and recordings of the Rehab Chat and Panel Discussion on each event's page on this website (see Program dropdown in upper right corner).
We are excited to announce the launch of Sea Turtle Talks, a free, three-day virtual event to be held September 14–16, 2021!
The goals of this event are to re-connect the global sea turtle community in advance of the 40th International Sea Turtle Symposium* and provide new, in-formal opportunities and discussions to learn about sea turtle research, conservation, and management around the world.
This is an International Sea Turtle Society (ISTS) event, supported and promoted by the ISTS Board of Directors.
Separate registration is required for the Rehab Chat and Panel Discussion.
As Twitter is a public platform, registration is not required to view Twitter Talks or participate in the discussion. However, you will need a Twitter account to engage in the discussion. The schedule is in the Abstract Booklet below and on the Twitter Talks Page. Follow @SeaTurtleTalks and #SeaTurtleTalks to keep up with the event. Learn more here.
Jul 19 – Sep 2: Registration open to present a Twitter Talk
