    KICKOFF FOR COASTAL GEORGIAS SEA TURTLE NESTING SEASON

    Nesting season for Georgia’s sea turtles officially starts on May 1st. The Turtle Trot is a fundraiser for the Tybee Island Marine Science Center’s Sea Turtle Conservation Fund. Our Tybee Sea Turtle Project watches over the island’s nesting sea turtles and their hatchlings.

    On the pavillion, there will be music and you’ll meet Ike, our resident sea turtle and marine debris ambassador, whom we will be releasing into the Gulf Stream this summer.

    After the race we’ll have our ceremonial releasing of a loggerhead sea turtle back to the ocean. right off our beach and next to the pier–with our partners the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.
