Ecology Project International partners students with scientists to help solve critical conservation issues. The goals of Ecology Project International’s fourth annual Student Sea Turtle Symposium are to:
1.) enhance conservation of endangered sea turtles in Costa Rica by involving local students in research and protection efforts beyond the nesting beaches.
2.) convene 250 Costa Rican high school and university students, and 30 scientists for a day of learning and exchange.
3.) highlight student research, artwork and education initiatives.
4.) inspire and enhance scientific, educational and social efforts in local sea turtle conservation.
5.) facilitate connections between student peers, biologists and university programs.
6.) collaborate with other community-based turtle projects to share information, ideas and resources.
