2022 Turtle Season has begun!

It's time to think about turtles at Edisto Beach. The 2022 Season runs from May 1 to October 31! The turtles need your help to stay safe while nesting, incubating and hatching this season. Here's a few things you can do to help:

  • Turn lights facing the beach out at night

  • Take everything with you when you leave the beach (especially garbage, plastic, cabanas and chairs)

  • Stay back from nesting mama turtles and hatchlings

  • Fill in any holes and demolish your sand castles

  • Do not search for turtles at night and especially do not shine bright lights

Thank you for your support in keeping our Edisto Beach turtles safe! If you want to do even more, think about Adopting a Nest this year!
