Join us for our educational webinar series, "A Celebration of Nantucket Sound" (ACONS). Our guest speaker in June is Karen Moore Dourdeville, the Sea Turtle Stranding Coordinator for Mass Audubon's Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.
For this webinar, Karen will present an overview of the four species of sea turtles that feed in our waters. Karen will also explore different aspects of Wellfleet Bay’s sea turtle work, including cold-stunned sea turtle rescue season, the summer sea turtle strandings and sightings project, and the sea turtle conservation research resulting from collaboration with colleagues from other organizations.
Karen's work with protected marine species began at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, on projects including marine mammal underwater acoustics, radio-tagging and tracking, and aerial identification of individual whales. She received an undergraduate degree from Ohio Wesleyan University and a MS, Biology, from University of Massachusetts, Boston.
A live Q&A with Karen and Save Our Sound President Audra Parker will follow the presentation!
