Come Face-to-Face with the Sea Turtle Lifecycle During Turtle Treks of Terramar
Interested in learning more about sea turtles? Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime during Turtle Trek on Saturday, August 3rd at 7:30 p.m.! This event is sponsored by Turtle Treks of Terramar, the only hatchling rescue eco-tour!
Before your Turtle Trek, meet up with the folks from Sea Turtle Oversight Protection for an educational presentation at the Headquarters, where you’ll learn about the coastal habitat, the species of turtles that nest on Florida beaches, their life cycle and the natural and human-caused dangers that affect them. Following this 30-minute presentation, you will accompany rescue volunteers on to the beach habitat to begin the Turtle Trek.
You will enjoy a rare opportunity to possibly witness newborn sea turtles emerging from a nest while seeing the threats they face and observing as trained staff rescue turtles that mistakenly scurry to the bright city lights. After all, are safely recovered, celebrate their release at the ocean’s edge as these ancient mariners get another chance to continue their epic journey of survival.
During the Trek, guides will continue sharing important facts about the coastal habitat, the importance of sea turtles to the ocean ecosystem and more about challenges these animals face the moment they emerge from their sandy nests.
Turtle Trek is an opportunity to witness part of the life cycle of one of Earth’s oldest endangered species. However, as with all wild animals, their movements and behaviors are unpredictable. Given this fact, there is no guarantee you will see any sea turtles on the Turtle Trek.
Expect the unexpected! Registration for Turtle Trek is $25 per person. Reservations can be booked online at http://www.seaturtleop.com. Due to the late hour and nature of the program, it is not recommended for children under 6 years of age.
