Sunrise Turtle Walk 2022

By Old account - Jekyll Island Authority (other events)

12 Dates Through Aug 27, 2022

Join the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on a Sunrise Turtle Walk to explore the wonders of Jekyll Island's beach ecology. Your guide will introduce you to the basics of sea turtle nesting and hatching, the ecological history of Jekyll, and any wildlife you come across. One of the potential activities could be the opportunity to witness an excavation of a recently hatched sea turtle nest. Program participants must provide their own transportation from the Georgia Sea Turtle Center to the beach access point. Group size is limited to 20 people per walk by DNR permit restrictions.  

If you have any specific needs to participate, please call or email at least one week ahead of your reservation. Please call Reservations (912-635-4076) or email ([email protected]).
