Join sea turtle researcher Dr. Larry Wood for an early morning Sea Turtle walk on the beach! Listen to Dr. Wood share his knowledge about Sea Turtle nesting habitats as we watch the sun rise over Singer Island. Learn how to identify sea turtle tracks and nests by species. Dr. Wood will also explain the dynamics of sea turtle nesting practices, and answers your questions about the process. If the timing is right, we may even watch hatchling sea turtles emerge from their nests!
A donation of $5 per person is required to attend the Sea Turtle Walk.
All funds raised from this event directly benefit local sea turtle conservation research.
Dr. Wood is the founder of the Florida Hawksbill Project, and a volunteer for the Sea Turtle Conservation League of Singer Island. Meeting times vary. You MUST REGISTER for full event details.
