Sea Turtle Awareness – Haulover Beach Park

Description
Journey into the world of sea turtles as you participate in an informative presentation, followed by our summer release program.  Learn about different sea turtle species and their life cycle, as well as some of the dangers they face throughout their lives.  Come face to face with hatchlings and join them as they embark on their exciting journey into the depths of the ocean.

The Sea Turtle Awareness program consists of a 45 min. PowerPoint presentation that explains the different Sea Turtle species and their life cycle. As well as some of the dangers they face throughout their life time. Following the presentation we lead the group out to the beach where we will release Loggerhead hatchlings. The group will be able to watch the hatchlings start their journey out to sea. Due to all sea turtles being protected by the Endangered Species Act no one besides the permitted staff are allowed to handle the hatchlings.

Reservations are required; You can make your reservations starting July 1st. Space is limited. Online Registration Information below.
