The St. Petersburg Audubon Society has received a $9,000 TogetherGreen national innovation grant to assist volunteers in protecting beach-nesting birds along the Gulf Coast this summer.

This morning, WMNF spoke with Dave Kandz, the conservation chair of the St. Petersburg Audubon Society.

The grant will enable volunteers to protect beach-nesting bird colonies along Gulf Coast beaches beginning in April.
