Event Description:

Sea turtle biologists will provide bilingual programs (in English and Spanish) before public sea turtle hatchling releases. We invite Latino families and our spanish speaking community to join us at the releases. NOTE that exact dates of the release will depend on when the eggs hatch and the hatchlings are ready for release.
