Record Year for Sea Turtle Nests in Emerald Isle


Emerald Isle is fortunate to have a dedicated group of volunteers monitoring sea turtle nesting activity in Emerald Isle!  

Volunteers routinely walk every section of the beach daily searching for new nests, and also care for the nest throughout the nesting period, and assist sea turtle hatchlings on their initial journey from the nest to the ocean.  

The 2016 sea turtle season has been a record year in Emerald Isle, with 51 nests along Emerald Isle's 12 miles of beach!
