Turtle Nesting Beach Cleanup
Come join 'Team SOS' as we help clear the beach of liter along the shoreline for turtle nesting season. March is sea turtles nesting season and Leatherback sea turtles are first to lay eggs along Florida's Atlantic coast, followed by loggerheads and green sea turtles later this spring. Sea turtles can become tangled in plastic and trash both on the shore and in the water. Discarded items such as fishing lines, balloons and plastic bags may also be confused for food and eaten by sea turtles, often resulting in injury or death but our local actions can contribute to a clean, healthy ocean.
Please RSVP for the Turtle Nesting Beach Clean-Up on the "SOS Ocean Cleanup" Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/pages/SOS-Ocean-Clean-Up/1480539015514730
