August 31st, 2015 — The St. Kitts Sea Turtle Monitoring Network (SKSTMN) hosted their 8th annual Sea Turtle Camp this year July 21st â€“ 24th and July 28th â€“ July 31st, 2015.
Dr. Kimberly Stewart, SKSTMN Founder said â€œI canâ€™t believe this is our 8th year of camp! Â Whatâ€™s really great is that some of my first students have now graduated and returned as counselors themselves. Over 40 children aged 9 to 12 years old representing 17 primary schools joined us this yearâ€.
Graduates officially become Junior Conservationists with the SKSTMN. Junior Conservationists can join patrol staff during leatherback nesting season and return as Sea Turtle Camp counselors in subsequent years.
