Learn about sea turtles and possibly witness the hatching of sea turtles on Topsail Island. Participants will spend evenings on the beach “nest sitting” — waiting for baby loggerhead sea turtles to leave their sandy nests. Daytime hours can be spent swimming, beach combing or catching up on sleep. We will also visit the Topsail Sea Turtle Hospital to learn about their work in caring for sick and injured sea turtles.
Participants are responsible for motel reservations and costs. Lodging information will be given upon completion of registration.
