During December and January 1997/1998 and 1998/1999, CRESLI conducted field research trips with students from Southampton College of Long Island University and elsewhere, to protect and study the nesting and hatching success of leatherback sea turtles (Dermochelys coriacea) at Las Baulas National Park in Costa Rica (1997/1998 at Playa Grande; 1998/1999 at Playa Langusta). The following is a sampling of slides taken during the studies.
