Turtle Conservation with CFC in Florida

DSC_0235One of our Florida members, Chris Gutierrez, woke up before sunrise last month to help document an important event in Florida

He says this about the event, “The turtle walk was a success! All together we checked nearly 150 nests, we dugout 2 nests (nests get dugout 3 days after hatching to record data on the eggs and check for any stragglers) and there were two hatchlings we were able to rescue!

We also checked up on the Snowy Plover nests which SCCF also monitors.. so I was able to photograph them as well.. I also focused a lot on the volunteers and photographing them doing their work. All together I say it was very successful!”

A big thank you to Chris who provided photo documentation services to SCCF for free and to our blog to help highlight awareness of these efforts in Florida. This is what Cameras for Conservancy is all about! Even one person can make a difference!
