Join Maura Kraus, Environmental Specialist for Collier County, in a special lecture about sea turtles–air-breathing reptiles that emerge from the sea and deposit their eggs on tropical and subtropical beaches around the world. Collier County has been monitoring and protecting sea turtle nests since 1989. Components involved in protecting sea turtles include monitoring nesting, beach lighting regulations, and salvage of dead and sick or injured sea turtles, as well as a public education and awareness program.
