Sarai Zelada


University of Massachusetts Amherst 


Hello! My name is Sarai and I am from Massachusetts. I attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst where I studied Natural Resource Conservation and Italian. I enjoy exploring new places, watching foreign films, growing veggies, and simply being outdoors. I have always been interested in sea turtle conservation and am thrilled to begin this adventure with Sea Turtle, Inc. 
My favorite sea turtle is the Kemp's ridley. I was living on Cape Cod when an overwhelming number of them became stranded on beaches there. I was able to see the recovery of some and witnessed the release of others back into the ocean."
