Sea Turtles Brunswick County

Every year from the beginning of May through September, the beaches of Brunswick County are visited by a variety of sea turtle species that come ashore to create nests and lay eggs. Many of these turtle species are endangered, so it's crucial to help hatchlings survive and reach the sea. Local sea turtle protection programs, staffed by volunteers from Brunswick County communities, work throughout the nesting season and beyond to protect sea turtles. Our REALTORS® have put together a list of 6 local programs, where you can help to preserve these majestic creatures.
