Kristina Williams has been working with sea turtles since 1990, after graduating with a Master’s degree in Biology from the State University College at Buffalo in New York. She also has a Bachelor’s degree in Biology received from the State University College at Geneseo in New York. Kris has a long history of working with various types of turtles in many locations. She has worked with Kemp's ridleys in New York and Mexico; leatherbacks in Costa Rica; and loggerheads in Florida and Georgia.
In 1996, the Caretta Research Project (CRP) in Savannah, Georgia, hired Kris as their Director and she’s been working there happily ever since. The CRP is a non-profit research, conservation and education program that has been protecting loggerhead sea turtles that nest on Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge in Georgia since 1973. The tagging program on Wassaw Island remains one of the longest running tagging programs in the United States. When Kris isn’t working with the loggerhead turtles, she volunteers her time serving on the board of the Friends of the Savannah Coastal Refuges and working on her photography.
