The SERTSN meeting is a biennial meeting for people working with sea turtles in the southeastern United States. It began in 2011, making this its second meeting. The TMTR collaboration will be represented at the meeting - though not because of their work in Tecolutla. Andrew Coleman will be presenting work that he has done with juvenile kemp's ridley turtles in the Gulf of Mexico. The SE US turtle habitats are critical to the turtles nesting in Tecolutla and a meeting like this gives us the opportunity to remember and discuss the importance of the connections between what might seem like disparate locations.
