Challenge exceeds goal to offset damage to nests
The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation recently reported that more than 25 individuals and families have met and exceeded the Linsmayer Family’s Challenge to raise funds to support SCCF’s sea turtle nest monitoring efforts after nests were damaged on Captiva in late July. County and state law enforcement continue to seek tips as they investigate the incident. The SCCF reported that it will report any findings as they occur, as well as share updates after the nests are inventoried in the coming days and weeks. Anyone with information on the damages nests is asked to call the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922 to report it. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward.
