Sea turtle course at Stetson features guided visit to sea turtle nest at Fort DeSoto Park
Students in Stetson University College of Law’s special summer course on Sea Turtle Law and Policy visited a sea turtle nest at Fort DeSoto Park on Aug. 28.
Stetson was awarded a grant by the Sea Turtle Grants Program to offer the one-credit, three-day course, “Topics in Biodiversity Law: Sea Turtles,” on its Gulfport, Florida, campus for law students and graduate students who are pursuing degrees in marine science, environmental science, or environmental policy.
The course was offered through Stetson’s Institute for Biodiversity Law and Policy on Aug. 26–28. Law and other graduate students learned about threats to sea turtles and the local, state, national, and international legal and policy framework to protect them.
Scholarships funded by the Sea Turtle Grants Program covered the cost of the course for students.
