The Bermuda Turtle Project is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a lecture series featuring international experts.

The series is set to begin on April 26 with David Godfrey, executive director of the Sea Turtle Conservancy in Florida, giving an illustrated presentation.

The Sea Turtle Conservancy is the world’s oldest sea turtle research and conservation group.

A Bermuda Zoological Society spokeswoman said: “This lecture will share some of the very first sea turtle video footage, inspire your appreciation of these mysterious animals, celebrate a half century of success in protecting sea turtles and acknowledge the challenges these species still face.

“David’s presentation will begin on the black sand beaches of Tortuguero, Costa Rica, the largest remaining nesting site for green turtles in the Western Hemisphere — and trace the beginnings of a movement to study and protect sea turtles that spread from Tortuguero to the far reaches of the Caribbean, Bermuda and eventually around the world.”

The event will be held at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, and proceeds will go towards the project.

Tickets are available through he Bermuda Zoological Society website, www.bzs.bm, or call 293-2727
