We’ve gotten our first survey report from our newest beachwalkers out on the Georgia barrier islands! New Seanetter Rebecca Bell submitted a survey late last month that turned up a dead adult Northern Gannet.

We are immensely grateful to our Georgia participants since many of them are reporting on beaches to which we would otherwise never have access. Little Cumberland Island, for instance, where Rebecca prowls around, is private and accessible only by boat. Little Cumberland and Great Cumberland Islands together are considered one island, and their combined area makes Cumberland Island the largest of the Georgia Sea Islands.

SEANET benefits from extensive and intense monitoring of sea turtle nesting on the Georgia islands, and the sea turtle folks have been more than accomodating of piggy-backing the SEANET surveys onto their already considerable workloads.

We look forward to more and more reports from Georgia, and hope to include more on Rebecca and her beach in a future post.
