See Newly Hatched Tybee Island Sea Turtles as You Help Excavate a Nest With Our Team!

Space is limited to 15 participants for this rare opportunity to join members of the Tybee Sea Turtle Project to excavate a recently-hatched sea turtle nest.

Meet at the science center for a brief presentation on sea turtles, visit with our marine debris ambassador, Matthew the loggerhead sea turtle, then travel a short distance to watch as the Sea Turtle Project volunteers, as permitted by DNR, excavate a recently-hatched nest to count egg shells, determine hatch rates, and assist any stragglers still remaining.
