As mentioned last year (here), Reserva Playa Tortuga has been researching the effects of sand erosion at Playa Tortuga.

As a part of our partnership with the Georgia Sea Turtle Center (GSTC), our former Americorp research intern, Ashley Lavere, presented the results of our erosion study during the nesting season 2016 at The SEPARC Southeast Partners In Amphibian And Reptile Conservation. We will post our research findings shortly.

A BIG thanks to all volunteers who worked under the hot sun and braved river crossings to collect data for this study.
