Our Permitted Beach Walkers and Turtle Nest Surveyors are a dedicated group of volunteers throughout the Keys who rise before the sun every day and patrol our beaches for turtle nests. EVERY DAY, rain or shine! Once a nest is spotted, it is staked out and monitored until it hatches. After a successful hatch, the nest is excavated and data is collected and passed along to the State of Florida. This data is quite important as it helps provide an insight into the nesting habits, and hatchlings , along with an abundance of information that is used to help protect our beautiful Sea Turtles worldwide.
If you’d like to be a part of this special team, but can’t, you can still help our Volunteers by Sponsoring a Beach Walker. Your contribution is tax deductible and 100% goes to help Save-A-Turtle do what we do best! Thank you for your support! Flippers Up!
