For 2 months, Te mana o te moana’s team in Tetiaroa had the pleasure of working alongside Dr. Jonathan Monsinjon, a scientist specializing on the effects of climate change on sea turtles. He has helped our teams on the ground to analyze the results of the data collected since 2011 on the temperature of the nests during the incubation period recorded thanks to the installation of thermologgers. His assistance in highlighting the research work carried out for more than 11 years by the association has also been very beneficial.
Present during the « nesting peak », Jonathan also participated in the identification of nesting females and in the protection of hatchlings.
A big thank you to Jonathan for his investment!.
