The Florida Hawksbill Project has now joined forces with the National Save the Sea Turtle Foundation of Ft. Lauderdale Florida. The Foundation has been a strong supporter of the Hawksbill Project over the years, and will now serve as the ‘home-base’ for the continuing effort. Over the next year, we plan to expand the footprint of the project southward. New evidence suggests that populations in the Keys may be linked to populations in Palm Beach, and we seek to understand what influences their patterns of distribution in South Florida.
Many thanks to the great people at the Palm Beach Zoo for so graciously supporting the Project for the last five years!
