About the Speaker
Cheryl King has been researching sea turtles since 1996 in multiple locations including South Carolina, New York, Florida, and Palmyra Atoll.  She has a Hawaiian sea turtle-focused marine biology Master of Science degree from Nova Southeastern University Oceanographic Center (Dania Beach, FL).  Cheryl moved to Hawai‘i in 1999 and this is her fourteenth nesting season running Hawai‘i Wildlife Fund’s Hawksbill Recovery Project, which focuses on the conservation of Maui’s nesting and foraging hawksbill population.  She also coordinates HWF’s Honu Watch, a community-based research, education and conservation project started in 2008 that protects Maui’s basking green turtles.  To raise awareness of the impacts of marine debris, Cheryl created www.sharkastics.org in 2010 to encourage everyone to get involved with keeping our oceans beautiful.
