Description

Researchers from the University of Groningen recently used genetic testing to identify the geographical birthplaces of green sea turtles foraging within Lac Bay, Bonaire between 2006-2007 and 2015-2016. There was an overall increase in juvenile green turtles from the northwestern Caribbean and a general decrease in population recruitments from both eastern Caribbean and southern Atlantic.
