CMA Needs Your Help!

The CMA Sea Turtle Nesting Team urgently needs a
new nest monitoring utility vehicle!


CMA is responsible for the discovery and safekeeping of sea turtle nests along the 26 miles of Pinellas county shoreline. The sea turtle nesting program is a very successful and important part of CMA's mission. This season was flourishing with more than 200 nests located on Pinellas County beaches.

A New Challenge:

The CMA team is now facing a new challenge and an urgent need: a new utility vehicle for patrols. Volunteers rely on this vehicle to complete their daily patrols without disturbing the environment. Without it, they must walk the beaches, adding hours onto the daily routine and limiting our ability to effectively protect these endangered species.

Utility Vehicle

2013 Kawasaki Mule 4010 4x4
