We are underway for our second year of "Turtle Gardens" after completing our first "Turtle Garden" project in 2015 at the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences and Loveladies, New Jersey. There is now a garden on LBI at High Bar Harbor! Working with the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, we deposited 15 cubic yards of sand at the LBIF, which attracted four female terrapins to the new nesting location. It led to 35 hatchlings. Next summer, we plan to install two new "Turtle Gardens" along the Barnegat Bay shoreline. Thanks to the Barnegat Bay Partnership for their contribution to this project.
