Sea Turtle Nesting and Beach Nourishment Projects

 
The following scientific monitoring reports are conducted annually to evaluate the effects of the County's current beach nourishment and other coastal construction projects on sea turtle nesting and reproductive success, as well as to provide baseline data for the evaluation of future projects. These reports include sea turtle nesting surveys; nest fate evaluations; reproductive success and hatchling productivity calculations; and, disorientation, escarpment formation, and storm impact monitoring.
