sea turtle

A Kemp's ridley sea turtle nests on shore. Among the threats to the endangered creatures are improper fishing and plastic pollution.

A science degree isn’t required for local residents to participate in a major scientific undertaking. iSeaTurtle, a tracking app developed by Texas A&M scientists for an ecological assessment of Matagorda Bay, is now usable to track sea turtles across the Texas coast.

The idea for the app grew out of discussions between researchers and fishers.
