The permits for this project contain specific provisions for marine turtle monitoring. This report summarizes activities of the sea turtle monitoring project and includes the following: daily early morning surveys of the nesting beach were required to begin 65 days prior to commencement of construction activities or May 1, 1997, whichever date was later, and were required to continue until October 31, 1997; and nests located within the project area were relocated between sunrise and 9:00am daily.
