Doug Stilson, DDS

One of our newest colleagues, Dr. Doug Stilson, joined the team in March, 2007 to film the research work in HD video. Doug documented hours of research while we measured, weighed, released and tracked turtles. With hours of video recording in hand, we can now review activities and behaviors of turtles we’ve released, following them as they swim, investigate their habitat, and surface for air. Direct observations, such as those we’ve captured on video, are vital for gaining insights on sea turtle behavior that we just can’t get from more remote sources, like radio or satellite telemetry. Doug is currently working on a DVD production about the TAPS research program.
