Ever Wonder what a Day in Life of a Marine Biologist is like?
Patrol for nests by night, snorkel and kayak by day, and release hatchlings at sunset. A
day in the life of a Marine Biologist is filled with adventure, discovery, and most of all the conservation
of endangered species like sea turtles!
learn snorkeling, kayaking, sea turtle biology, and have hands on sea turtle conservation experiences.
Sea Turtle nests usually hatch at night and the first turtles emerge in the early morning. These nests need to be escavated
later in the afternoon to free any trapped hatchlings that didn't emerge on their own.
Participants will assist in excavations,
record data on nest contents, measure and care for hatchlings, and help manage hatchling releases.
