I am an undergraduate student in Marine Biology at Fluminense Federal University (UFF).
My research focuses on ecology, residency, fidelity, and behavior of sea turtles and scientific

I am writing my monograph, which is about monitoring the sea turtles (Chelonia mydas and 
Eretmochelys imbricata) that are living in Arraial do Cabo. For this, I use photo-identification
and citizen science applied from instagram @mardetartaruga, where I post scientific
information about turtles and provide an explanation on how to collaborate with the project
by sending photos and information about the turtles and dives. Based on this data, I am
building a database of individuals for long-term monitoring and for subsidies for the
management plan of Arraial do Cabo.
