NMB Sea Turtle Patrol

Sea Turtle Conservation

The North Myrtle Beach Sea Turtle Patrol strives to recruit, train and organize North Myrtle Beach residents in an effort to monitor, preserve and protect Sea Turtles on North Myrtle Beach.  Organized in 2010 the North Myrtle Beach Sea Turtle Patrol is a volunteer group that works under the supervision of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources to preserve and protect endangered sea turtles. Volunteers walk the beach every morning at sunrise in search of sea turtle tracks that lead to nests. After nests are located, volunteers construct fences to protect the nests and are on hand to help the sea turtles to the sea once they hatch.  North Myrtle Beach Sea Turtle Patrol encourages the public to participate in protecting the sea turtles by reporting any tracks or nest to 843 283-6670 any time of the day or night as well as any nesting females on the beach, stranded turtles or hatchlings.  The Patrol always needs volunteers; if you or members of your family are interested in volunteering while on vacation please visit their Volunteer Page.
