The Caretta Research Project is a hands-on research, conservation and education program that has been protecting the nesting loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) on Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge since 1973. Each year, for 16 weeks during the summer, groups of volunteers travel to the beaches of Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge to help monitor egg-laying and hatching activity and to collect data on the loggerhead turtles.

During her lecture, Williams will discuss the four types of turtles that can be found in and around Georgia, why their populations are dwindling, and what she and her team are doing to help.
 
About the Coastal Ecology Dinner Lecture Series
Created by Ocean Plaza Beach Resort Innkeeper Harry Spirides, the Coastal Ecology Dinner Lecture Series is held at the resort’s Dolphin Reef Oceanfront Restaurant on the third Thursday of every month and is open to the public. The multimedia lectures, which feature topics pertaining to coastal ecology, are presented by distinguished experts in the field but given in terminology everyone can understand. There is no entry fee or cover charge to attend the presentations. The lectures are preceded by a wine and cheese reception at 6 p.m. in the Dolphin Reef Bar, and the standard dinner menu is served in the Dolphin Reef main dining room at 6:30 p.m. for those attending who are hungry. The Coastal Ecology Lectures begin at 7 p.m. and last for approximately 45 minutes, followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer period.

Spirides created the lecture series after noticing that many of the hotel’s customers, who come from distant inland areas such as North Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio and beyond, have expressed an interest to not only explore Tybee Island and to see, touch, hear, and smell the natural habitat and see native wildlife, but also to be educated and learn all about the area’s living species and ecosystems. To meet that need, Spirides asked relevant organizations in the area such as the Skidaway Island Institute of Oceanography and Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary if they would be interested in presenting monthly lectures on topics related to coastal ecology. They gladly accepted his invitation. 

Spirides is a former U.S. Coast Guard officer who patrolled Georgia’s coastline and waterways for several years while on duty. He says it was during those many excursions that he developed a deep appreciation and fondness for the Georgia coast’s vast expanses of undeveloped, pristine natural habitats and the species that live there. 

“Our Coastal Ecology Dinner Lectures embrace Tybee Island’s surrounding natural geography and ecology and offer a unique educational experience to our community and its visitors while engaging and spotlighting various organizations that are out there every day doing a lot of hard work for the preservation of our ecosystems and yet receive very little attention and diminishing funding,” Spirides said.

The first lecture was held this past November and was presented by Dr. Marc Frischer of the Skidaway Island Institute of Oceanography. Dr. Frischer’s presentation outlined his extensive efforts to monitor the effect of climate change on the marine ecosystems of the oceans and the melting of the polar ice caps as documented extensively by him at Barrow, Alaska. The second lecture was given by Dr. George Sedberry of Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary. Dr. Sedberry’s topic was “Coral Habitats Off Georgia and Adjacent States: Exploration, Fisheries and Conservation.”

(HARTFORD, CT) MARK CUTLER BECOMES CHAIRPERSON OF GREATER HARTFORD SCORE

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

PRESS RELEASE

Email:contactus@hartfordscore.org

MARK CUTLER BECOMES CHAIRPERSON OF
GREATER HARTFORD SCORE

Hartford, CT – Mark Cutler, an experienced international business developer and management consultant
has recently become Chairperson of the Greater Hartford Chapter of SCORE, the SBA sponsored provider of
counseling to small businesses.

Mr. Cutler worked for 32 years for The Gillette Company, a consumer goods company based in Boston
Massachusetts. Mark spent half of his 32 years with Gillette outside the United States when he lived and worked in
Panama, Peru, Spain and England. When he retired from Gillette in 2002, Mark was a Vice President for the
International Group.

Mr. Cutler has been an international business developer and a management consultant to scientists from the
Former Soviet Union since 2002. He has developed business plans, provided commercialization support, helped
attract investment and trained scientists in Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Iraq and
Libya. In executing these tasks, Mark has volunteered his time to several non-profit organizations as well as to the
United States Government (State Department).

In addition to the work in the Former Soviet Union, Iraq and Libya, Mark has been active in volunteer work
for SCORE, being incoming Chairman of Score’s Greater Hartford chapter, a nonprofit association dedicated to
entrepreneurial education and the formation, growth and success of small businesses nationwide, as well as in CDC
Development Solutions, a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization based in Washington DC providing innovative
and market-driven solutions that empower individuals, businesses, and governments in emerging markets. Mark is
also on the Board of Directors of SMS Audio.

In 2004, was recognized by President Bush with the President’s Volunteer Service Award. In addition, was
featured in a Time Magazine article in December 2003 on volunteerism in America and has received awards from
CRDF and US State Department for volunteerism.

Bernie Sweeney, District Director of the U.S. Small Business Administration, commented: “We are
delighted to have Mark as the new Chairperson of our chapter and are looking forward to using his leadership
and teaching skills in our workshops and seminars. We are particularly pleased to have another counselor who
is currently involved in international business as his presence in the chapter will help to insure that we stay
abreast of current issues confronting businesses.

According to Mr. Cutler, his interest in joining SCORE stemmed from his desire to share his entrepreneurial
drive with current and prospective small businesses owners. He also thinks that “… it is important to increase
the involvement of entrepreneurs in counseling and mentoring organization like SCORE because it helps to
insure that the organization and its volunteers accurately reflect the current business environment.”
