Tuesday at 2: Sea Turtles of Sea Turtles of Gulf County

Tuesday January 28, 2020
2:00 PM until 3:00 PM


Jessica Swindall, Volunteer Coordinator, St. Joseph Peninsula Turtle Patrol, Florida Coastal Conservancy and Forgotten Coast Sea Turtle Center

Gulf County is home to more sea turtles than anywhere else in Northwest Florida—and they play an important ecological, cultural, and economic role in our area. During this Tuesdays at Two presentation, we'll learn why sea turtles are good for us and what we can do to help them. Jessica Swindall became interested in turtles by volunteering and has served as Volunteer Coordinator for the St. Joseph Peninsula Turtle Patrol since 2010.  She was a founding board member of the Florida Coastal Conservancy and Forgotten Coast Sea Turtle Center. From 2010 to 2015, she worked with the University of Florida Marine Turtle Research Group tagging nesting female sea turtles on St. Joseph Peninsula and capturing and tagging juvenile sea turtles in St. Joseph Bay.  Currently as Volunteer Coordinator for the St. Joseph Peninsula Turtle Patrol, she conducts sea turtle nesting surveys, manages volunteers, develops and implements sea turtle education and outreach programs, and submits sea turtle nesting data to FWC.  Jessica has also been conducting sea turtle nesting surveys as a volunteer at St. Joseph Peninsula State Park since 2012, and is the current President of the Friends of St. Joseph State Park, an organization she has served since 2014. She received her B.A. degree in Psychology from the University of Alabama in 2007 and her M.S. degree in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Florida in 2015.
