WestConn students joined instructors from the university, the Wooster School in Danbury and the University of Guadalajara at a field camp on Mexico’s Pacific coast to begin a long-term project to track the epic migratory journeys of the Ridley turtles native to the region.

WestConn Associate Professor of Biological and Environmental Sciences Dr. Theodora Pinou, coordinator for the turtle migration research project at La Gloria field camp in the west central Mexican state of Jalisco, accompanied the WCSU undergraduate students majoring in secondary education during the two-week summer program. Also participating in the program were two teachers from Wooster School, a faculty member and two students from the University of Guadalajara, and two high school teachers from Mexico.
