Oak Island Sea Turtle Protection Program
The Oak Island Sea Turtle Protection Program is a group of volunteers who direct their efforts to protecting endangered sea turtles. They patrol the beach each morning to locate and mark newly laid nest. When the time comes for hatching arrives, they monitor the nest nightly until the turtles hatch. They educate the public, keep records for the NC Wildlife agency and do our best to ensure that all hatchlings make it safely into the ocean. Visit www.seaturtle.org for nesting information on Oak Island.
If you see an injured or dead sea turtle/hatchling, please report to : Sea Turtle Hotline -252-241-7367.
