Members-Only Hatchling Release Ticket Sale

Date: July 13, 2013 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
As we move towards the end of the peak of sea turtle nesting, we begin the peak of our sea turtle hatch-outs. During this program, hatchling sea turtles removed from nests excavated by our Marine Turtle Specialists in the morning are waiting to be released into the ocean in the evening. Participants watch as our staff place baby sea turtles on the sand several feet from the water's edge, and allow them to scurry into the ocean on their own.
