Emergence 512

The sub-tropical waters of Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge are home to nearly 200 fish species, support nearly 200 bird species, and are defined by the world's largest remaining in-tact mangrove forest.

Each summer, approximately May-September, biologists boat through the waters of Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge to five beaches where nesting loggerhead and green sea turtles lay their eggs.
