The University of Florida’s world-renowned sea turtle expert Archie Carr paved the way for sea turtle conservation. For over 30 years, his students have carried on his legacy at UF's Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research. Now, as sea turtles face modern threats like climate change and habitat decline, a new generation of students are seeking solutions. To celebrate World Sea Turtle Day (June 16) and honor Carr's birthday, UF News explored the past, present and future of research and conservation efforts at the Center.
