This nonprofit supports maintaining a healthy habitat for turtle migration and provides 24/7 patrols and security during the nesting and hatching phases of turtle migration. We hold this activity in the early evening to avoid disturbing nests and to release turtles at the optimum time for survival. This is a seasonal activity available in September and October.
