Alabama’s sea turtle nesting season starts today
Alabama’s sea turtle nesting season officially begins today (May 1), and the Share The Beach monitoring program, under the auspices of the Alabama Coastal Foundation (ACF) staff, is ready.
The ACF reports that preparing for this year’s season was challenging due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But with help from the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Alabama Department of Conservation, Share the Beach team leaders and volunteers are ready.
