The pivotal temperature is the constant incubation temperature that produces equal numbers of males and females.   Since I’m not sure what state you live in, I can’t give you specific names of organizations. You might be able to volunteer at a nearby sea turtle nest monitoring system or stranding network. However, there is probably an age requirement that you’ll have to look into.  Another option is to ask your local aquarium if they know of opportunities in your hometown or nearby area. Google sea turtle centers or marine life hospitals in your state and see what comes up. Even if you’re not old enough to volunteer now, it’s a great idea to keep these opportunities in mind when you get a little older. It’s also important to do well in school, especially in math and science. Being a sea turtle biologist requires excelling at math, chemistry and physics in addition to biology. @seaturtlelover
