SEA TURTLE “HATCHLING” SUMMER CAMP
August 7, 2017 - August 11, 2017
An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until August 18, 2017
Young turtle campers can get an up-close look at the Sea Turtle Assistance and Rehabilitation Center in this fun-filled week of sea turtle activities. Learn how to identify North Carolina sea turtles, find out what happens to stranded sea turtles, prepare treats for turtles in the STAR Center, and meet some of the sea turtle “patients.” Campers will go through the steps from rehab to release as we perform a mock stranding, record real measurements, and assess turtle health. Take part in a beach clean-up to reduce threats to these endangered species, and create turtle art out of trash. Excavate a replicated sea turtle nest and perhaps even get to visit a real sea turtle nest on the beach!
Closed toe shoes and a bag lunch are required.

Session II: August 14-18
Monday through Friday, 9:00am – 3:30pm
