Hello, I am new to the forum and wanted to introduce myself. I am currently a senior biology major/environmental studies minor at Ithaca College. This summer I am completing an internship at the Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor, NJ, focusing on the conservation of the Diamondback Terrapin.

Last month we received a call regarding a dead loggerhead turtle that had washed ashore at a local beach. Dr. Roger Wood (Research Director at the institute, Professor at Richard Stockton College of NJ), Dr. Patrick Baker (research scientist at the institute, professor at Swarthmore College) and I went to check it out...

Investigating the scene




Dr. Wood points out the probable cause of death...


...injury from a boat propeller


It looked like it was about to burst






I probably shouldn't look so happy, but it was my first time encountering a loggerhead and was exciting nonetheless
