Ana Rita Patricio

Postdoctoral research fellow, University of Exeter

I am a marine ecologist and my research focuses on several aspects of marine turtle ecology, including understanding migratory paths and connectivity, prevalence and impacts of Fibropapillomatosis disease, population dynamics and trends, and also on investigating climate change impacts on nesting populations. My recent work in West Africa has also a strong focus on participatory conservation, community engagement and capacity building.
