Turtle Patrol Update
Current Nest Count: 269
Nesting Season: May-October

Follow the turtle patrol season on our Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Remember: May thru October all outdoor lighting facing the beachfront should be turned off from 9:00 p.m. to dawn. If you encounter a nesting female, admire her from a distance. Do not approach her or make loud noises. It could cause her to return to the ocean and not nest on Kiawah. NEVER interfere with a turtle nest. It is illegal to harm, or in any way interfere with a sea turtle or their eggs. Photo: Jed Christoph
