Watch the journey of this skeleton as you learn of its death in the marshes of Lieutenant's Island in 1982 and its display at Bridgewater State University, first in the Conant Science Building and then in the new science building.

Thanks to NECWA staff member, Alex Egan, for putting this together for us. It is a fun video and we hope you enjoy it.

2016 Sea Turtle Necropsies are in full swing!

Sea Turtle Necropsies down at Woods Hole!

As we wind down our sea turtle rescues on Cape Cod beaches, we now begin necropsying the sea turtles that didn't make it. Rescuing live animals from the beach makes our hearts sing as we feel like we are making a difference in the lives of these endangered marine creatures. So dealing with the carcasses of animals that didn't survive, makes us very sad.

If we use these carcasses as learning tools, then our efforts are not wasted. Each carcass examined allows us to collect valuable information that will help us better understand their biology and ecology.

NECWA collaborates with Mass Audubon at Wellfleet Bay for sea turtle necropsies down on the Quisset Campus at WHOI. What a great team of staff and volunteers! And what a great experience for our staff and interns.
