Tracking Green Sea Turtles in the Bahamas with TurtleCams

We all became acutely aware of the dangers of plastic pollution in 2015, when a video of marine biologist Nathan Robinson pulling an entire plastic straw out of a sea turtle’s nose began to circulate. Today, Robinson is studying green sea turtles off the coast of the Bahamian island of Eleuthera, relying on TurtleCams. The devices are mounted on the backs of turtles.
