Jean Beasley and friend.

Jean Beasley, executive director of the Karen Beasley Sea-Turtle Rescue
and Rehabilitation Center, has been elected to the Board of Directors of
the International Sea Turtle Society.

The election took place during the 27th Annual International Symposium
on Sea Turtle Conservation and Biology, held in March.

I would like to congratulate Jean, and all the staff at the hospital, on
the election.

Besides attending the symposium, the staff of the Beasley Hospital took
two of their resident turtles to the event. Which was a much bigger deal
than you might think!

As always, my thanks to Karen Sota for all this great news.
