  • Description:
    "The 33rd Annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation was held on February 2-8, 2013 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Baltimore is within the National Capital Region which is a hub for important scientific research, policy and decision-making by the nation's government and many leading conservation organizations. The pioneering 1st World Conference on Sea Turtle Conservation was held in Washington, D.C., 26-30 November 1979, and having this year's meeting in the National Capital Region just over 33 years later provided an inspirational link through time and location. 'Connections' was the theme for the Baltimore Symposium, and our focus for the meeting was to explore the biological and ecological linkages that sea turtles share with their environments, while also examining and celebrating the connections that they impose on us as we try to learn about and conserve them. The theme was evident in the attendance, the program, the special sessions and activities, and the partnerships that made the meeting a success. There were 1016 registrants, representing 67 countries, and an additional 130 local students and educators attended particular sessions. The program included 7 regional meetings, 5 workshops, 4 special sessions, and a Video Night. There were 144 oral presentations and 248 posters- an additional 53 talks were given during a three-day Terrapin, Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Meeting preceding the main Symposium. Forty-three Vendors and Exhibitors, including many that were new to the event, contributed to an engaging venue. The National Aquarium in Baltimore was a key partner in hosting the Symposium, providing volunteer personnel and access to their facilities, and the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center were strong partners in our education efforts. The Symposium was held at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. The venue provided ample meeting and lodging space for the participants. The convenient facilities and the very accommodating staff were conducive to both intellectual and social interactions"--Page iii.
