Turks and Caicos collaboration with Salt Cay Divers
by Mithriel MacKay - Friday, 25 November 2016, 01:07 PM
MCERC has partnered with Salt Cay Divers during the 2017 field season in the Turks and Caicos Islands for the TCI Humpback Whale Project. All participants whether through us or as a guest with them will be fully involved in our data collection and research this season.

We will also be working with the Department of the Environment and Coastal Resources collecting data on sea turtles by free diving and snorkeling in water, as well as beach walks over night and during the day time hours. You will learn sea turtle ecology along with your humpback whale ecology curricula!
