Fall Outreach

Getting information out about the Sea Turtles is crucial in helping in the survival of these gentle creatures. So many people are not aware they use our beaches, many more do not know how to react when they come across a nesting female or a hatchling on the beach.

Many of the NMB Sea Turtle Volunteers go one step further in their volunteering and help with talks on the sea turtles, participate in various festivals or go to local civic groups with information.

In September, NMB Volunteer, Julie helped the local Myrtle Beach Brownie Troop 955 work on their Sea Turtle Badge. These wonderful girls created a display about the sea turtles, using many of the wonderful photos and other information that Julie gave them. This display is current in the Chapin Library in Myrtle Beach. Thanks Julie and a huge thanks to this wonderful Brownie Troop.


On Oct. 8, Six NMB volunteers worked a table at Ripley's Aquarium's Ocean Bay Middle School Night. Lots of information on the Sea Turtles, lots of pictures, even a couple of videos showing hatchlings emerging from the sand. Many students and parents stopped by and talked with us.


A huge thanks to these great volunteers. And a special thanks to the girls from Brownie Troop 955. Can't wait to go to the Library and see your display.
