On January 18th, Kate Levasseur will be discussing some of her research that examines the genetics of the nesting populations of hawksbill sea turtles in Antigua and Barbuda. Kate is a doctoral candidate at the University of South Carolina, and her work is supported by collaborations with the Jumby Bay Hawksbill Project and the Antigua Sea Turtle Conservation Project. Her use of genetic techniques has revealed fascinating information about hawksbill migrations, population demography, and behaviour.
The seminar will take place in the MultiMedia Room at the Antigua State College from 6-7 PM. There will be time for questions following the talk. This event is open to anyone interested in attending. This is the first instalment of a four-part, monthly series running January - April this year. Stay tuned for information about the next seminar coming in February.
