Hey, y’all! Everything’s coming up sea turtles! Turtle Tammy has great news.
“Nest #12 was found this morning. The turtle was still on the beach witnessed by Kevin and Danny (sea turtle nesting volunteers). Danny took pictures and was able to read the tag. I will find out where this turtle was tagged and get that information out soon. The nest was relocated to a higher spot. It is north of the East Gate (Sugar Shack) crossover.
Thanks to Turtle Tammy and all of the volunteers. Everything’s coming up sea turtles on Tybee and we’re so proud!
The magazine says, “skirt! is all about women…their work, play, families, creativity, style, health, and wealth, bodies and souls…skirt! is an attitude.” It’s definitely an honor for Diane to be included and it was another great opportunity to share her Mermaids Make A Difference philosophy.

Mermaid Cottages announces our next BEACH SWEEP!

Please meet at the Tybee Visitors Information Hut near the Tybee Pier. Gloves, trash bags and trash grabbers will be provided.
Mermaid Cottages offers our guests the opportunity to combine their vacation travel with volunteering on Tybee Island. Participating in various local projects alongside our Mermaids and Mermen allows our guests to “live like a local” and gives you a chance to give back to our coastal community.
Keeping our island neat and clean isn’t just important to us, but for all of our wonderful wildlife and beach ecology, too.
It’s LABOR DAY weekend, so come be with the Mermaids (and Mermen!), residents, guests and friends and let’s Keep Tybee Tidy!
It’s VOLUNTOURISM at its best! Y’all comin’?
