Mid-Atlantic Aerial Surveys - Day Eleven

Today was another productive fly day and we surveyed from Long Branch, NJ up to Islip, NY including Long Island Sound! Sightings were not quite as frequent as they had been further south, but we did see 21 bottlenose dolphins, 6 loggerhead turtles, 1 leatherback, and one green turtle! We also ran another experiment with model turtles in Long Island Sound in conjunction with the Riverhead Foundation.
