A national organization, Seaturtle.ORg, tracks information about sea turtle nests by state. Information includes:
Unique Females: The number of individual females identified from the genetic samples.
Nests – total number of nests and includes undetected nests. This does not include possible nests
The students will report on their research efforts to understand estuarine shoreline protection strategies and decision-making with a particular focus on living shorelines. Living shorelines encompass a range of techniques for utilizing “soft” or “green” elements, such as natural materials like vegetation alongside harder structures like oyster reefs or rock sills, to stabilize shorelines and reduce erosion without the use of structures like bulkheads or seawalls.
Dr. Gittman’s presentation, entitled “Are We Engineering Away Our Natural Defenses Along North Carolina’s Coast?”, will highlight a variety of erosion control strategies, both natural and engineered, and the benefits each bring to coastal systems.
surveys off the Carolinas will gather very high quality data on birds, whales, dolphins, sharks, fish, turtles and other marine species in an area of almost 10,000 square nautical miles, giving scientists an unparalleled understanding of the area’s wildlife.
Video : N.E.S.T., or Network for Endangered Sea Turtles, takes on many roles to help protect these threatened and endangered sea turtles at the STAR Center (Sea Turtle Assistance and Rehabilitation Center) inside Roanoke Island, NC Aquarium. Visit their facility and don’t miss your chance to view a sea turtle release: nestonline.org/ or ncaquariums.com/roanoke-island-exhibits.
Coyotes in North Carolina resemble red wolves, but coyotes are smaller, have
pointed and erect ears, and long slender snouts. Their long, bushy, black-tipped tail
is usually carried pointing down. Color is typically dark gray but can range from
blonde, red, to black.
