Dominica Sea turtle Conservation Organization, in partnership with the Georgia Aquarium, are working to research and conserve sea turtles in Dominica. A small island in the Caribbean, Dominica has several sea turtle species nesting on it's beaches. Leatherbacks have been the main focus due to poaching on the island of adults and nests. Georgia Aquarium and DomSeTCO support patrollers on the main leatherback nesting beaches and has initiated a sea turtle tour program bringing visitors and locals alike to witness sea turtle nesting events on the island.
