Volunteers Needed for Sea Turtle Washback Program
St. Johns County is in the midst 2015 Washback Turtle Season. Volunteers survey the wrack line (the row of seaweed that has been pushed onto the beach by the tide or a storm) for stranded post-hatchling sea turtles. Once sea turtles hatch from their nests and make their way to the water, they swim in search of a large mass of seaweed where they find refuge and protection. Storms and high tide events occurring from August through November can push the mass of seaweed onto the beach. The washback turtles, which are slightly larger than a hatchling, are extremely tired, dehydrated, and in need of medical attention. Washback volunteers survey the wrack lines and contact authorities if a stranded turtle is located.
If you see a washback turtle, please do not touch it. Beach-goers are asked to contact 1.888.404.FWCC.

Residents will learn how to find what flood area they may be in via the County website, the value of flood insurance, and any mitigation that may be possible. For more information, please contact Mr. Schock at 904.827.6806 or jschock@sjcfl.us.
