The story of my life as a sea turtle in the 21st century
by Andrea Fariñas - Monday, 17 December 2018, 2:13 PM

This storytelling is about the natural and anthropogenic threats that sea turtles have to deal with nowadays since they hatch. The aim of its style is to catch the interest and transmit science to all the public, specially to the children. In my opinion, the youngest public has an important role on the conservation of marine ecosystems and even though science could be complex to understand, they should be aware about the current state with the new research outputs.
