Seabrook Island Turtle Patrol Receives Award…. Again

At the 2017 Year End Turtle Patrol Party sponsored by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, the Seabrook Island Turtle Patrol received the award for the highest number of reported volunteer hours worked on sea turtle conservation for the second consecutive year!
These volunteer hours are matched dollar-for-dollar in grant money. This money ultimately pays for the genetics project and the DNR support staff who work each summer.
This is the second year in a row that the Seabrook Island Turtle Patrol won the award. This year’s award was a hand-crafted Christmas ornament with a sea turtle hatchling charm inside.

As you can see from the following graph, Seabrook Island won by a large margin with 4,773 hours.

The Award was accepted by Terry Fansler, Turtle Patrol Leader, who represented Seabrook Island along with Lori Porwoll and Gayle Evans.
The award is a testament to all the hard work and dedication on the part of our Turtle Patrol Members. Many thanks to the whole Seabrook Island Turtle Patrol.
