The spring issue of SCCF’s magazine, Connecting You to Nature, explores several issues that impact the islands and Southwest Florida: planning for climate change and sea level rise by building coastal resiliency; international turtle trafficking and how Sanibel’s prized species are being monitored and safeguarded; tips for protecting shorebirds and sea turtles during their nesting seasons; and SCCF research to understand the chronic effects of brevetoxins on nesting sea turtles.
The magazine also includes information on SCCF’s “Be A Life Saver” campaign to educate beach visitors in partnership with local resorts, and the goal of a collaborative, three-year project to restore the Hemp Key rookery’s mangrove canopy and oyster reef habitat.
The magazine was mailed to SCCF members and island-wide on Sanibel and Captiva last week. SCCF is grateful for Bailey’s General Store and Uhler & Vertich Financial Planners’ co-sponsorship of the Spring 2021 issue. Thank you for sharing our mission and vision of connecting our islanders, members, and readers to nature.
