Project Description

Increase and enhance the collection of information on the causes of sea turtle mortality in Florida to inform the development of future management actions aimed at reducing mortality. The project involves the establishment and staffing of a dedicated sea turtle necropsy facility strategically located along Florida’s Gulf Coast, with appropriate staff for the 10-year project period. Under the program, staff will retrieve and conduct necropsies on more than 250 sea turtles carcasses found each year.
