Though not explicitly corridor related, future conservation work with the National Park Service, monitoring Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles will provide further training in wildlife research techniques.  This experience will also delve into the issues of human-wildlife conflicts, providing insight on public cooperation for conservation initiatives.  Some threats to these magnificent creatures include nest predation by animals and humans, fishing net mortalities, mortality from beach vehicles, pollution and climate change.  United Corridors hopes to cultivate professional relationships with conservation professionals for future collaboration.
