We love our sea turtles! SeaTurtle Nest season has begun on Tybee ( and the entire Georgia Coast) and we’re looking foward to a record year. Several types of sea turtles nest on Tybee, Loggerhead Turtles have already arrived on other Georgia Sea islands and we’re looking foward to our first nests here soon!
Several of our team joining in the 2008 Tybee Turtle Trot to help raise money for the sea turtle project. This is our picture before we walked three miles on the beach to raise money. Mermaid Cottages also sponosored a Life Size Turtle which sits in front of the Tybee Marine Science Center and this is what we’re sitting in front of.
For more details on what you can do to encourage more nests on Tybee, or to sponsor a egg or nest, go to http://www.tybeemarinescience.org/ and then go to Sea Turtle Project.
We’ll keep everyone updated when we have our first nest!
