A look at Sea Turtles
The life and habits of the majestic leatherback turtle will be discussed during a Valley of the Moon Nature Lecture series event on Wednesday, Nov. 16, from 7 to 8:45 p.m. at the Sonoma Valley Veterans Memorial Building.
The guest speakers of the evening include Teri Shore, director Turtle Island Restoration Network; and Greg Holzer, a Sonoma-based diver who volunteers his time to help monitor sea life along California’s coastline. Holzer also participated in a unique sea turtle research trip to the Cocos Islands last spring.
The lecture will look at the migration of the turtles, specifically as it relates to California. The magnificent and mysterious Pacific leatherback sea turtle swims more than 6,000 miles across the ocean to feed on jellyfish along the California coast.
Soon the Sonoma coastline will soon be designated a safe haven for these ancient and critically endangered ocean dwellers. The lecture is sponsored by the Sonoma County Regional Parks and SonomaBirding.org.
The Sonoma Valley Veterans Memorial Building is at 126 First St. W., Sonoma.
There is a $5 donation sought at the door.
