Hundreds of loggerhead sea turtles wash up on Chesapeake Bay beaches each summer. But why? Learn how Dr. David Kaplan?s unusual research approach is being used to find the likely cause by first determining the location of injury or death via use of manufactured turtle models and ?Frankenturtles? (reconstructed turtle carcasses), which the researchers deployed last summer to map the effects of winds and currents. Join us to learn about this interesting research that aims to reduce mortality of these fascinating and iconic creatures.

 The lecture is the January installment of the After Hours lecture series for 2017.
