TURTLE NESTING SEASON WITH THE NSB TURTLE TRACKERS

MDC Sea Turtle Lecture, May 2015

MDC Sea Turtle Lecture, May 2015

Each morning at sunrise from May through October, the NSB Turtle Trackers survey the beaches from Ponce de Leon Inlet to the north boundary of Canaveral National Seashore in search of sea turtle tracks in the sand.
When tracks are found, volunteers determine which species of turtle came ashore, whether she nested, and if the nest is in danger of being inundated by the tide or washed out by storm water runoff.
You are invited to listen to the many stories and data that they have collected.

WHEN: Thursday, May 21, 6 – 8 p.m.
WHERE: 520 BARRACUDA BLVD.  NEW SMYRNA BEACH, FL 32169
