Grant Amount: $3,000.00
Completion Date: 2004-08-17

Summary: The Clearwater Marine Aquarium will produce educational sea turtle posters as a vital component to offset the direct contact education that is done by staff on the beach. Before and during nesting season brochures and posters will be distributed to the general public, as well as restaurants, hotels, businesses, schools, and condominiums.

Results: A new sea turtle informational poster was developed in May, 2004. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) had 15,000 posters printed for distribution to 10 cities within CMA's beach survey area in Pinellas County, Florida. Posters were also distributed to beachfront hotels and restaurants, at a Business Expo in July, 2004 and county schools. (Author: G. Harman)
