$88k to protect sea turtles

The Commonwealth’s Department of Lands and Natural Resources is receiving $87,848 in Species Recovery Grant Program funding, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced on Wednesday. The funds cover the third installment of a three-year $248,612 grant aimed at increasing knowledge of green and hawksbill sea turtles and to promote outreach and enforcement. Program objectives include developing a hotline for reporting stranding and poaching incidents, hiring a sea turtle conservation officer, producing public service announcements, and developing an elementary school education curriculum to help reduce poaching of sea turtles. Congratulations to DLNR.
