Dorothy Sifuentes Discusses Animal Tagging at the 2023 St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center

Detailed Description

Dorothy Sifuentes (Caribbean-Florida Water Science Center) discusses how tags are used to track movement and behavior of several aquatic imperiled species, like sea turtles. For more than 10 years, the St. Petersburg Science Festival has celebrated STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) activities with elementary school children and the public over a two-day event. The USGS has been a supporter of this event since its inception, and was a premiere exhibitor at this year’s event—exhibiting eight different activities during the public festival on Saturday, February 18th, 2023.
