SEA TURTLE CONSERVATION: A CHANGING LANDSCAPE
The Greenville Zoo will host Kelly Thorvalson, a native of Georgetown, SC and the Conservation Programs Manager at the South Carolina Aquarium. Thorvalson will discuss how the South Carolina Aquarium is not only triaging sick and injured sea turtles in the Sea Turtle Care Center but working to mitigate environmental risk factors and help advance sea turtle conservation initiatives in relation to plastic pollution, sea level rise, climate change and sustainable seafood.
