Dr. Larry Wood has been working with sea turtles for nearly 30 years. His lifelong interest in reptiles brought him from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania to Juno Beach Florida, where he undertook sea turtle nesting surveys, helped develop a sea turtle rehabilitation facility, and created a variety of public awareness and marine education programs. In 2004, he established the Comprehensive Florida Hawksbill Research and Conservation Program (a.k.a. The Florida Hawksbill Project), which is the first and only long-term study of hawksbill sea turtles in Florida. Dr. Wood has contributed to sea turtle conservation in many ways in Florida and elsewhere through his publications, contributions to symposia, and student/volunteer mentorship. He is currently pursuing his research and public education interests with the National Save the Sea Turtle Foundation, located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
