MELBOURNE, Fla. - A zoo in Brevard County needs your help tracking the East Coast Diamondback terrapins, a unique subspecies that lives along Florida's Atlantic coast.

The Brevard Zoo wants everyone from the Space Coast to Miami to report sightings to them.

The terrapins are usually found in brackish coastal waters like the Indian River Lagoon.

Send sightings along with pictures and GPS coordinates to terrapin@brevardzoo.org .

The zoo said the project will help biologists identify critical habitat and road-kill "hot spots".
