Thousands of hatchling sea turtles are starting to emerge from the 880 nests that dot Volusia County’s shoreline, along with tens of thousands of nests from other counties and the Greater Caribbean.
To better understand the behavior of multiple sea turtle species along Florida’s Space Coast, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has teamed up with aviation leader Northrop Grumman and the Brevard Zoo to launch a drone-based surveillance effort.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is unveiling its new 2020 manatee and sea turtle decals. New editions of these collectible stickers are released every July and are available with a $5 donation online or at your local tax collector’s office. All proceeds from the decals help fund manatee and sea turtle conservation efforts.
