Daytime Activities:

 

Nursery Watch and Hatchling care

(Dec 10- Mar 10, 10am-3pm).

The greenhouse requires monitoring throughout the day to care for emerging hatchlings. Participants have the opportunity to watch newly hatched turtles emerging from their nests and learn how to care for them.

 

Biologists for a day will have full access to the turtle camp and greenhouse where they will be trained by our  Biologists, Technicians and/or Volunteers.   Children under 15 must be accompanied by a parent. If you are doing the day time Nest Watch you are definately welcome to stay for the hatchling release at sunset. 


Nest Inventory & Hatchling Release

(Dec10- Mar 10, 4:30-6:30pm)

Participants assist in "Nest Clean Out" to free any hatchlings that may be trapped below debris. You will be trained on seperating and counting nest contents such as empty shells, infertile eggs, and hatched turtles.
