The researchers at Turtle Base Tampa have lost contact with Tango, a female loggerhead sea turtle that was tagged when she was young. Returning to nest on her home beach every few years has provided valuable behavioral and tracking data to help expand our knowledge of sea turtles. Students are challenged to help in the search! Spending time at our conservation outpost, participants will learn more about sea turtle life history and how humans and sea turtles can live together in harmony. Students will use critical thinking and inquiry-based learning strategies to discover challenges that sea turtles and other creatures encounter.
