Abstract
Description
There are four species of sea turtles that occur in South Carolina waters. Standardized aerial surveys over the past 20 years show a decline in the number of nesting loggerheads in South Carolina. To mitigate factors impacting sea turtles in the coastal environment requires coordination and cooperation among various federal, state and local government agencies and private groups. The SCDNR state program is the best means of implementing recovery plan tasks with these other entities. Five studies are covered under this grant program: Technical Guidance, Sea Turtle Stranding and Salvage Network, Movement and Habitat Use of Post-Nesting Loggerhead Sea Turtles, Information and Education and Foraging Habitat Delineation.
