Conservancy of Southwest Florida Sea Turtle Monitor and Protection Program
- Through patrolling beaches, marking nests, tagging turtles, counting hatched eggs and educating the community, the Conservancy’s team of biologists and interns work to protect and monitor the success of loggerhead sea turtle nests.
- Conservancy began the Florida Sea Turtle Monitoring and Protection Program in 1982
- Now, in its 36th year, (2018) the program has saved more than 285,000 hatchlings.

- We also work on sections of Naples’ beaches.
