If you cannot attend one of these and you have visiting family or another group who’d like to learn about the Diamondback Terrapins and help release some to the march, please contact Carolyn McInerney at 912-507-3700 or Pattye Field at 912-660-5140.

 

 

Here is one family’s Hatchling Happening experience:

“Being part of the whole ImpromptuHHatPoolPartyturtle preservation process on Skidaway Island was such a treat for us and our grandchildren this summer. Because we live near a turtle enclosure, they were able to see newly hatched babies when Pattye drove past one night. Our daughters were equally thrilled a couple nights later to watch her dig up a newly-laid group of eggs and then took part in a release of Diamond Backs into the marsh. Carolyn was so good with the kids, sharing her knowledge about the effort and the turtle life cycle. Of all the things we did that week, the turtles were definitely the high point.”
