Sea Turtles Abroad!
Meet Alex Witter! Alex is a committed conservationist who is working with sea turtles in Costa Rica for the summer of 2015. Alex is volunteering with a group called Turtle Trax that combines conservation, hands-on volunteer work, community projects, and locally based tourism to sustain sea turtle populations.
Alex began her career at the Essex County Turtle Back Zoo. Working as a seasonal associate, Alex was a key member of the Zoo’s butterfly team. Turtle Back Zoo is excited to support Alex and Turtle Trax as they protect and conserve our vulnerable sea turtles.
