Name of Data Source: FWRI Sea Turtle Nesting
Number of Water Resources Sampled: Unknown
Datasource Abbreviation (dataset): FWRI_SEATURTLE
Description of Datasource: Distribution, seasonality, and abundance of nesting by sea turtles in Florida derived from observations of tracks and other nesting signs left on the beach.
Method of Transferring Data to the Atlas: Manual transfer via HTTP
How Often Data is Transferred to the Atlas: Annually

Disclaimer/Use Constraints: Changes in survey boundaries for individual beaches and variability in survey frequency (days per week) and period (beginning and ending dates) occur in the SNBS program, making it inappropriate for assessing population trends. Population monitoring is the goal of a complementary DEP program, the Index Nesting Beach Survey Program.
