Sea Turtle Preservation Society Monthly Meeting
Monthly Meeting to be held via Zoom. The meeting will begin at 7 pm.
This month, members of the University of Central Florida’s Marine Turtle Research Group will join STPS to talk about the upcoming sea turtle nesting season in Brevard County and the most-asked questions that their team fields about sea turtle nesting.
The UCF Marine Turtle Research Group research program focuses on sea turtle biology, ecology, behavior, and conservation across all sea turtle life stages—from eggs to adults. The MTRG provides field-based educational and research opportunities to students, and scientific advisory service to local, state, and international science and management entities. Their field sites include long-term nesting
beach and coastal juvenile sea turtle research programs within Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge and the Indian River Lagoon in central Florida, and oceanic “lost years” tracking work in the Gulf of Mexico, North and South Atlantic, and Indian Oceans.
