BENEFITING: SEA TO SHORE ALLIANCE

EVENT DATE: Feb 28, 2014

THE STORY:

Most of Florida’s sandy beaches and near shore environments provide critical habitat for sea turtles. Unfortunately, rapid coastal development combined with a lack of awareness about the fragile nature of sea turtle nesting sites, threaten the future of Florida’s marine turtles.

As the number of residents and visitors continues to grow, it is imperative that coastal communities are instilled with a strong sense of stewardship over these priceless creatures and their habitat. The Neighbors Ensuring Sea Turtle Survival (NESTS) program promotes the protection of sea turtles and their nesting beaches through public education and encouraging community stewardship.

Throughout the year NESTS visits schools, businesses, and attends various wildlife festivals around the state to teach folks about simple activities they can do to help benefit nesting sea turtles, their nests, and their hatchlings.

To hold our program at the current level (and grow it slightly), a $20,000 budget would fully fund NESTS for the 2014 calendar year and allow us to produce our newly designed outreach materials. NESTS has three major funders, but this year they were only able to fund at a $9,000 level where previously they have granted NESTS $18,000. We hope you will recognize the value of public outreach and education, and consider supporting this important program!

Please help us share the knowledge!
