Shannon Secco counts the contents of a sea turtle nest while John Jennings excavates the rest of the nest Aug. 23, 2013 at Tyndall Air Force Base. Natural Resources specialists compile data for Florida’s monitoring system on these nests including where the nests are located, what species of turtles laid the nest and how many successfully hatched out of the nest. This information helps to preserve and increase the sea turtle population. Secco is a lead biological aide and Jennings is a wildlife technician with the 325th Civil Engineering Squadron Natural Resources department.
