Saving sea turtles from marine debris with Dr Kathy Townsend (Part 1 of 2)

Dr Kathy Townsend is a Senior Lecturer at University of Sunshine Coast, with a particular interest in marine conservation and human impacts on the marine environment. In this fascinating chat, we take a deep dive on Kathy's some 17 years' experience researching the impact of marine debris on sea turtles - and what we can all do about it.


This is the first part of our two-part chat with Kathy, with the second (and final) part released next week.
