April 2024 Speaker

Speakers: Matthew Brochhausen


Discussion topic:  The Turtlely Awesome Life of Sea Turtles


April Location: Sir John's Restaurant


Matt originally grew up in Carmel, NY and went on to The University of Rhode Island where he graduated with a degree in Biology focused in Marine Science. He has worked with sea turtles for over six years, including rescue and rehabilitation work at the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, Fl as well as the Turtle Hospital in the Florida Keys. Matt went on to help establish a protection program for nesting sea turtles in a small village of Costa Rica. 


Matt will be speaking about not only the 7 different species of sea turtles in our oceans but also his experiences in the health and rehab of sea turtles during his time at the turtle hospital. He will also be presenting on turtle life cycle and migration, from natal homing to a hatchling’s perilous journey to the ocean. Matt’s presentation brings a wealth of hands on knowledge and experience that most of us can only dream of obtaining.
