Bio: Professor Stephen G. Dunbar is the Graduate Biology Program Director in the Department of Earth and Biological Sciences at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California, USA. After completing undergraduate degrees in Biology and Science Education at the University of British Columbia, Canada, Dunbar spent time as a secondary and adult educator in Canada, Fiji, Korea, and Australia. With a desire to increase his understanding of biology and research, Dunbar began a Master’s degree program at Central Queensland University, Australia, in 1997 and was upgraded to the PhD program the following year. Dunbar completed the PhD in 2002 and was immediately recruited to a research-teaching position at Loma Linda University (LLU). Since coming to LLU, Dunbar has carried out marine research projects in the United States, Bahamas, Fiji, and Honduras, and has advised MS and PhD students working in California, Washington State, Belize, and Honduras. As part of his sea turtle research and conservation work over the past 10 years, Dunbar established the Protective Turtle Ecology Center for Training, Outreach, and Research, Inc. (ProTECTOR, Inc.), a US-based, non-profit organization with the goal of working with local communities and organizations to understand and conserve the marine turtles of Honduras.
