Full title: Investigation of the effects of sea level rise on sea turtle, shorebird, seabird, and beach mouse nesting distributions within the South Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative region


Principle investigators: Von Holle et al. (University of Central Florida)


Overview: Links long-term survey data for four species of sea turtle, three species of shorebird, five species of seabird, and two beach mouse species to maps of coastal sea level rise vulnerability to understand the effects of sea level rise on population viability and socioeconomic resources. The coastal study areas include nesting beaches from North Carolina south to Melbourne, Florida.


Why selected: This project will help LCC conservation planning better inform coastal decision making by evaluating the impact of sea level rise on beach nesting species and socioeconomic resources.
