Christine is a marine conservation biologist who took part in setting the global anti-plastic movement in motion while fighting for the survival and protection of sea turtles.
She is working on the ground to protect nesting sea turtles and their eggs from people who steal and sell them. She also studies the migratory behavior of sea turtles out at sea to better understand their biology.
Christine can get local assistants and much-needed equipment and tools to keep nesting sea turtles and their babies safe and learn more about their behavior out at sea.
Only about 1 out of 1000 baby sea turtles make it to adulthood. The ones that make it risk becoming fishing bycatch and getting poached for their eggs, meat, and shells. If they still manage to survive, they are threatened by yet another thing – plastic pollution.
