Sea Turtle Symposium

It's a whole new world for me... who would have thought that every year thousands of 'turtlers' meet at a symposium to tell each other what they and the turtles have been up to? This year it was in Brisbane, a fine excuse for me to come over and visit friends and family at the same time. Four days of really interesting presentations and discussion, catching up with friends and making some new ones too. I had the opportunity to make a short presentation and display two posters. Enjoyed the good food too, especially the cakes!
