Nest Excavations

Alligator

Our sea turtle nest excavations are free and open to the public.  These magical events give our guests a good chance to see a hatchling crawl to sea with the help of our Conservancy staff.  Excavations take place three days after the nest hatches.  Our staff will dig up the nest, take an inventory of the eggs, and release any hatchlings that are still inside.  We hope to see you there!

Please be sure to park in a safe spot off to the side of the road so there is room for emergency vehicles.  You can learn more about our Sea Turtle Protection Program here.
