ProTECTOR Inc. — International (2015)


A 2015 SWOT grant was used to cover a portion of a photo identification (PID) workshop at the 36th Annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation in Lima, Peru, in February 2016. The workshop examined computer-assisted PID software and practices to advance PID techniques throughout the sea turtle research and conservation community.

The day-long workshop gave sea turtle researchers and computer programmers the opportunity to connect and discuss needs, opportunities, and goals of PID methods and technologies. The long-term goal of the PID workshop is to create a freely available global PID sea turtle database to advance sea turtle conservation.
