Data vs. Wildlife Poachers

Episode description

Turtles have been around since the days of the dinosaurs, but are they about to follow them into extinction? Conservation scientist Kim Williams-Guillén is doing her best to prevent that. In this episode of ‘Fixed That For You’ we combine 'Breaking Bad,' a Hollywood special effects expert, and a 3D printer to track down poachers on remote tropical beaches.

'Fixed That For You' is an original podcast from Segment. For more on the series go to fixedthatforyou.com.

Take a look at National Geographic’s short video to learn more about sea turtles.

Sea Turtle Conservancy is the oldest organization in the world working towards saving sea turtles through research, advocacy, and education.

Kim Williams-Guillén is a conservation scientist at Paso Pacifíco, an American environmental group working in Nicaragua.
