Florida Sea Turtles
Are Sea Turtles Endangered?
These CCinc recommended educational resources are a great place to learn more about how you can do your part in preserving sea turtles and their natural habitats.
Our Sea Turtle Programs
Part of Coastal Connections Inc.’s mission is to continue this successful recovery by connecting more people to wildlife through our educational interactive sea turtle encounters and community conservation programs.
- Months: July and August
- Date: 3 days after a nest hatches
- Time: 8am
- Location: Sexton Plaza in Vero Beach, FL
Your adoption directly benefits the continued effort of protecting our sea turtles by providing educational interactive experiences. If your adopted nest hatches in July or August it may even be used for a public Turtle Dig. With your adoption you will receive an official adoption certificate and the reproductive results of that nest and depending on the adoption package you choose, you may get some extra special gifts.
Thank you to all of our 2019 Adoptees. There were 30 nests adopted this summer and all of them are beginning to hatch!
Our Turtle-Friendly Business Partners:
- Promote local sea turtle activities
- Provide educational materials
- Keep beaches clean and natural
- Follow the lighting ordinance
- Prevent obstructions to nesting
In return, these businesses receive first notice of any sea turtle interaction programs occurring throughout the summer in IRC and also appears in multiple local press releases. Over the years, interest in the program grows and each business does a phenomenal job keeping up their turtle friendly standards and bringing personality to the program. A recap of major successes from this program include: adding paper straw options, adding educational beach access signs, retrofitting property lighting, and adding fun turtle activity displays in hotel lobbies. We encourage you to support and visit the 2018 Turtle Friendly Businesses
