The St. Kitts Sea Turtle Monitoring Network (SKSTMN), our local non-governmental organisation (NGO) dedicated to researching and raising awareness of the plight of endangered sea turtles, is this week hosting some exciting visitors.

Mr. Greg Marshall, who is a Research Associate for the prestigious and internationally renowned organisation – National Geographic – has come to St. Kitts and Nevis with his colleague, Mr. Chris Luginbuhl, to offer assistance to Dr. Kimberly Stewart – founder of the SKSTMN – in the most unusual way.

Mr. Marshall has pioneered a unique research tool known as the “National Geographic Crittercam”.  The Crittercam does as the name implies – it is a tiny camera which is painstakingly adapted and tailored to suit each species that it has been tried on.
