Sea turtle nest stake painting held
On March 3, staff and volunteers with the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation’s Sea Turtle Program gathered to take part in the first official gathering in preparation for the 2020 sea turtle nesting season. Over 20 volunteers helped repaint wooden stakes used to mark sea turtle nests. The dedicated volunteers remained excited and upbeat, finishing the entire process of cleaning, painting, and stacking thousands of stake in less than three hours. The morning ended with smiles and a job well done, and an air of excitement for April 15, when sea turtle nesting season officially begins.
