Help excavate sea turtle nests

If you have an interest in sea turtles, you can take part in a "Citizen Science Program" this summer at MacArthur Beach State Park.

For the second year in a row, trained volunteers and scientists will excavate loggerhead sea turtle nests, five days after the eggs hatch, to analyze and record their findings.

The data will be sent to FWC to compare the productivity of nests at MacArthur to nests on other area beaches.

If you'd like to be a citizen scientist, training will be held on June 14, at 9 a.m., at the park.
