Helping Leatherback Sea Turtles Make a Comeback in Florida

Helping Leatherback Sea Turtles Make a Comeback in Florida

Chris Johnson is a researcher working to help tag and track leatherback sea turtles , an endangered species. The project started in 2001 as a collaboration between the Loggerhead Marinelife Center and Duke University, and it surveys 12 miles of very important beach that hosts the highest nesting density for leatherbacks in the continental United States. Not only does Johnson contribute to what we know about these animals through the project, but he is also providing wonderful photographs of sea turtles. This leatherback sea turtle returning to the ocean after nesting along one of the most productive nesting beaches in the United States. Check out the other beautiful images from Johnson.
