We are still seeing a large number of post hatchling (aka wash back) turtles being washed up on shore. To help insure their survival we need the public’s help by following the below listed Do’s and Don’ts:
Place them back in the water, They are exhausted and will drown.
Put them in any container with water due to the above
Place them in a dry container. You can put a little damp seaweed in the bottom.
Call our hotline at 321-206-0646 for instructions on what to do with them.
You can place them in the cooler that is located in North Lori Wilson park by the south cross over or that them to our store located at 111 A1A in Indialantic, just south of 192.
