Description

Little is known about sea turtles and their habitats at the remote Palmyra Atoll National Wildlife Refuge (PANWR) in the Central Pacific. This lack of knowledge may hinder management and conservation efforts. To help provide insights into protection strategies, in this exercise you will make suggestions for designing a comprehensive research program on globally endangered sea turtles of the Palmyra Atoll National Wildlife Refuge. You will then use existing survey data to answer questions about the relative abundance of endangered sea turtles along the atoll, and critically analyze your results. Finally, you will carry out research to devise your own methods for studying sea turtles at the PANWR.
