21st Annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation

February 23-28, 2001

Philadelphia, PA


Matt Rieder, Lee Mathis, Donica Payne, Anischa Oliver, Mark Gilbert, Dr. Steve Everhart, and Shivargo Rolle


A Philly Steak Sandwich was the main course for the social on Saturday night.


Students were all smiles for most of the trip.

This hand painted wall hanging was auctioned for $1400 and the BUYER RETURNED it to the Symposium for next year's auction.

294 posters were presented along with over 100 oral presentations and 8 video presentations.  There were nearly 900 participants representing at least 40 different countries, including the continent of Antarctica.

As seen with this young Salsa enthusiast, not all participants were seasoned sea turtle biologists.
