Join John Wnek of Project Terrapin, Marine Academy of Technology and Environmental Science as he tries to answer the question: How Are the Turtles Doing?

This is a special two-part presentation beginning with a Family Program from 10-11 a.m. He will explore 2018 turtle reproduction and how they have kept up with sea-level rise. Then from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. adults are invited to join us for a more in-depth discussion focusing on the continuing efforts to understand how derelict fishing gear is impacting Barnegat Bay, including updates regarding bycatch and a project on blue crab captures.
