CURMA Sea Turtle Conservation and Protection Seminar for ISM Students

The International School of Manila 8th Grade students participated the Basic CURMA Sea Turtle Conservation and Protection Seminar-Workshop on February 6, 2018 in San Juan, La Union. They were able to listen to inspiring stories on how CURMA volunteers perform their duties in monitoring the sea turtle nesting grounds along the coastline of San Juan.

They also took part of simulation activities on how to transfer a sea turtle’s natural nest to a hatchery and understanding the responsibilities of a coastal patroller. Lastly, the students learned that sea turtles are keystone species that limits the population of jellyfish and also cultivates the sea grasses in order for fingerlings and other young species of crustaceans could thrive naturally.
