Sea Turtle Nesting Season

Sea Turtle Nesting Season has already begun! The season runs from May 1st to October 31st. Our friends from the Tybee Sea Turtle Project have provided a conservation initiative of the Tybee Island Marine Science Center. We’re happy to share this with our Mermaid Cottages guests. 👫 Volunteers will be out at dawn to walk the beach every single day, looking for signs of nesting. Here are some reminders for the season –

🐢 If you spot any sea turtle activity including a mom or sea turtle tracks, ✨ leave it alone ✨ Volunteers
need all the field signs to locate the eggs, so even well-intentioned crawl or body pit marking can make that impossible for them. Feel free to stay by it and wait on volunteers, but leave it alone.

🐢 The beaches need to be dark, flat, and quiet. No lights, no sand castles left overnight, no big holes left behind, no tents and chairs as obstacles.

🐢 Help educate others. Many people who visit Tybee are unaware of basic sea turtle-friendly habits. Help us help turtles by sharing what you’ve learned so that we can all keep turtles returning to Tybee.

👉 For updates on the initiative be sure to follow: Tybee Island Marine Science Center and Tybee Sea Turtle Project.          

Mermaid Cottages are still available during sea turtle nesting season, so choose your favorite on our website or when you call or text our vacation planners at 912.658.0714.
