Turtle Trackers

by Alex Tyrrell

In 2021, Diver magazine published this article by friend of the program Alex Tyrrell from Dive4Photos, digging into one of our most successful citizen science efforts. 'Turtle Trackers' explores the origins and basis of our Tao Talay Aow Thai and Koh Tao Turtles projects, where images of wild sea turtles are submitted by the tourism community in the Gulf of Thailand, allowing us to create the most extensive database of wild sea turtles within Thai waters. The article does a fantastic job of introducing readers to the process and priorities of these efforts, enjoy!
