Mariel's thesis - Incubation of turtles on Sal

Congratulations to Mariel Murazzi who has just finished her Masters thesis and graduated from University of Pisa.  Mariel was with SOS Tartarugas in the summer of 2009 and worked tremendously hard as a Ranger in addition to doing the extra work required to complete her study.   The results of the study are very interesting and will make a real contribution to the conservation work we do.

The full title of the study is "Incubation Temperature and Risk Assessment Associated with the Transfer of Eggs on the Island of Sal".
