Reserve Wednesday: Taking the Temperature of Sea Turtle Nests
April 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Megan Lamb from the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve is ‘eggsamining’ the temperatures in sea turtle nests. Sea turtles eggs are very sensitive to thermal changes – temperatures during incubation have an impact on the ratio of female and male hatchlings that develop in a nest. Come to the Reserve’s Nature Center to hear about a research project that looks into finding out what’s going on under the sand.
