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.
