Biscayne’s Beaches Cleared for Nesting

FY13 BISC ASB Report

June 2015 – National Park Service volunteers supported by the SFNPT removed more than 14,000 pounds (seven tons!) of marine debris earlier this year from nesting beaches in Biscayne National Park, clearing the way for turtles to come ashore this summer. The heavy lifting was accomplished by 200 volunteers from 16 colleges and organizations who participated in the park’s “Alternative Break” program.
