How can I help?

  • DO NOT dig up nests or attempt to save sea turtle eggs
  • If you find sea turtle eggs that have been washed out of nests, leave the eggs where you found them. Once an egg is washed out of the nest, it’s no longer viable
  • If you find a stranded or injured sea turtle, DO NOT PUT IT BACK IN THE WATER. It may need special care. Instead, call Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) at 1-888-404-3922 or dial *FWC or #FWC from your mobile phone. They will properly instruct you on what to do.
