Final Push for Sea Turtles!
November 01, 2016
BENEFITING: EAST COAST ZOOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF FLORIDA INC
Women of the Wild, Brevard Zoo's critical conservation group of hundreds of women in Brevard County, Florida, calls for donations to fund the Zoo's partnership with Inwater Research Group (IRG), a marine science not-for-profit organization and their shared mission for conservation. IRG is studying the direct correlation between the health of the turtles in the Indian River Lagoon and those in Florida's Big Bend in the western panhandle region. If IRG is able to isolate why sea turtles in Big Bend exhibiting fibropapilloma tumors are thriving while sea turtles in the Indian River Lagoon exhibiting the exact same tumors are desperately struggling, they may be able to find a missing link hypercritical to the health of the Lagoon. Please support, share and follow this project as Women of the Wild steward research capable of achieving massive breakthroughs for the fragile and beautiful ecosystem we call home.
