Hi Reddit! I’m a sea turtle physiologist and I’ve developed a “pregnancy test” for sea turtles! AMA
Hi Reddit! My name’s Brie, I’m an award-winning physiologist, a published scientific author, and my love of sea turtles has forced me out of my small hometown in Iowa and required me to travel all over the country, and now the world, in search of education, professional opportunities, and answers to these questions: why are sea turtles struggling and what can we do to help them? I started out as a sea turtle rehabilitation intern helping one turtle at a time, but now my work uses hormones and other circulating proteins to develop tools for sea turtle conservationists, and my sea turtle “pregnancy test” has been praised by experts in my field for its conservation impacts. Thanks for your interest in my work and ask me anything!
Hey all! Thanks for all the great questions over the weekend! I'm signing off here but feel free to inbox me if if you ever have more interest in my research or turtles in general!
If you haven't yet please take a look at my blog at briemyre.blogspot.com for more on my research and what I'm up to next!
