Turtle Identification

The Center for Biodiversity and Conservation at the American Museum of Natural History (CBC-AMNH) has been studying green and hawkbill sea turtles on Palmyra Atoll in the Central Pacific. To help understand turtle movements we are developing methods for using the scale patterns on a turtle’s head to identify and recognize individual animals.
