Turtle Trackers on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, is a volunteer organization to educate the public on how to save the sea turtles by protecting sea turtle nests on the beach and protecting the newly hatched baby sea turtles so they may successfully journey to their ocean home.
Nest Count on all South Carolina Beaches
www.SeaTurtle.org is monitoring nest sites worldwide
You can help their baby sea turtles successfully get to their ocean home!!!
If you live on the beach or walk the beach after dark
Lights Out After 1o pm to 6 am
....because the baby sea turtle hatchlings will crawl toward the moonlight OR your white flashlight OR your house light! USE A RED LIGHT APP ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE
Close Window Shades
If you play on the beach and dig holes or create tracks
Fill in Holes on Beach
....because the baby sea turtle hatchlings will get stuck in the smallest trough on the beach...they are tiny, only a few inches long with only the smallest energy in reserve to make their way to the ocean.
If you are curious about the nests on the beach ....please do not touch
