Lucy Collyer
Postgraduate research student


My broad interests lie in the fields of marine conservation and biology, in particular focusing on marine turtle biology and population abundance. My research focuses on providing the distribution and abundance of juvenile green turtles (Chelonia mydas) in the Cayman Islands.

During my time in College and Undergraduate program at the University of Plymouth, I volunteered for 5 seasons with the Marine Turtle Conservation Project in Northern Cyprus. Here I gained experience in conservation work within the field as well as management roles. I also completed my Honors project on the effects of incubation temperature on hatchling morphology and hatch success of green turtles (Chelonia mydas).

Additional projects include spending the last two years to current date on marine turtle internship program with the Cayman Islands Environmental Department. 

Broad research specialisms:

  • Marine conservation
  • Sea turtle biology
  • Population abundance


BSc. (Hons) Conservation Biology
