This past spring I was lucky enough to partner up with Tahiti Tourisme to create a series about biology on the island of Moorea in French Polynesia. I'm so proud to present episode one of my new series 'Adventures in Biology,' where we meet Dr. Cecile Gaspar of the non-profit society Te Mana o Te Moana. The society is housed at the Intercontinental Resort and Spa, and it plays a major role in the rehabilitation of green and hawksbill turtles from all over the country. From giving tiny baby turtles their first food, to getting towed behind a boat and free-diving for adults, this was an amazing adventure!
