Tracking loggerhead sea turtles from one of the most important nesting sites in world

Dr. Daniel Evans has been tracking the migrations of loggerhead sea turtles from the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge on the central east coast of Florida since 2008.

The Carr Refuge represents one of the most important nesting beaches for loggerheads in the world. The research has identified important loggerhead migration pathways and feeding areas, as well as discovered some unusual behavior.

Dr. Evans will be talking about the findings, and conservation implications, of his satellite tracking research.

Dr. Evans is responsible for Sea Turtle Conservancy's educational activities, public presentations, organizing volunteers to help with STC’s sea turtle monitoring research programs, administers the Florida Sea Turtle License Plate Grants Program, and is the principal investigator on STC’s sea turtle tracking research program. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife Management from the University of Massachusetts, a Masters in Wildlife Ecology from Frostburg State University, and his Ph.D. in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Florida. He has been working at the Sea Turtle Conservancy since 1996.

About the branch

The Highland Square community is one of festivals, celebrations, eclectic shopping and dining experiences, and diverse citizenry, from seniors and families with young children to artists and college students and educators. The Highland Square Branch Library is a reflection of this vibrant neighborhood, with a collection that includes rich resources in Holocaust and LGBTQIA (GLS) studies, among many, and a programming schedule that includes writing workshops and opportunities to meet local authors, book discussions, film marathons, art studio experiences for young people, and much more.


Reference assistance, computers and computer classes, WiFi, copiers, scanning, and faxing round out the services provided within the library. The full scope of community participation, however, is seen in local senior care facilities, local schools and preschools, the area farmer's market, and neighborhood festivals where Highland Square Branch Library staff plays an active role in creating experiences for participants of all ages. Visit us soon on the Square.
