SC DNR Series #1 Interview with Turtle Technician

I have been asked by South Carolina Wildlife magazine to do a series of podcasts for their digital magazine www.SouthCarolinaWild.org. I will be spotlighting South Carolina Department of Natural Resources staff and the kind of work that they do.

My first interview was with Tyler Harrell, she is a turtle technician who works for the SCDNR. She was happy to share what her job is like, and all about sea turtles.

Listen on to see why I Had to Ask!


I also wrote an article called “Turtle Talk” a while back for SC Wild (the youth publication for the SC DNR) it can be found here: http://www.southcarolinawild.org/2017/09/01/turtle-talk/
