Summary / Description

Located off of the Florida Panhandle, St. George Island is one of three barrier islands near the mouth of the Apalachicola River, and is 90 miles from Tallahassee. St. George Island is a vacation destination and there are numerous rental homes with some homes occupied by full-time residents.

Since 2001, the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve’s (ANERR) St. George Island Volunteer Turtlers (SGIVT) have monitored and protected sea turtle nests during May through October. The SGIVT monitors a 10 mile length of beach between the St. George Island State Park and Bob Sikes Cut. Nesting along the 10 miles has ranged between 60 to 465 nests, and often hosts the highest concentration of loggerhead sea turtle nests on the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Interns will become familiar with Florida’s Sea Turtle Conservation Guidelines; walk sections of the beach to conduct morning nest surveys; distinguish sea turtle crawls and whether or not the female nested; locate, mark, and screen egg clutches; record relevant data; assist with stranding and salvage; conduct nest evaluations and record disorientation data; assist with adopt-a-nest program logistics; assist volunteers as needed; maintain nesting equipment; present a sea turtle presentation for visitors at the ANERR Nature Center; enter and QA/QC data; and assist ANERR staff with activities. Hands-on training will be provided and daily briefings will be held to help coordinate activities. Some research books and training films will be available.
