    About This Project

    Caretta caretta (loggerhead sea turtle) is a globally threatened species. The Georgia DNR relocates some nests for conservation management, yet we don't fully understand how a multitude of environmental factors may affect success of nests which is critical for successful sea turtle conservation and management. I will evaluate how temperature, moisture, vegetation, flooding, elevation, and dune orientation affect success of loggerhead nests on Ossabaw Island, Ga.
