Emerald Isle NC 2016 Turtle Protection Program

 

Emerald Isle NC Sea Turtle Protection Program 2016 Season

 

The Sea Turtle Nesting & Hatching Season is from May 1st to October 31st here in Emerald Isle.  We wanted to send out an annual reminder of proper behavior regarding the sea turtles.

General Sea Turtle Nesting Information as provided by Turtle Protection Program Coordinators Pam Minnick and Emilie Zucker.

For more information please click here.

May 1st thru October 31st is Sea Turtle Nesting & Hatching Season in Emerald Isle, NC

Please HELP by observing the following:

* FILL IN ALL HOLES that your children dig (mother turtles can get stuck AND people walking at night can be seriously injured?

* REMOVE tents, toys and beach gear overnight!

* KEEP OUTSIDE LIGHTS OFF at night (they disturb nesting mother turtles and distract hatching baby turtles toward the light but away from the ocean which is where they need to go)

* PICK UP TRASH especially plastic bags (turtles think they are jellyfish which is their main food source and eat them and get sick)

* FIREWORKS ARE ILLEGAL in North Carolina (the noise keeps mother turtles from coming on shore to nest and disturbs baby turtles during hatching)

* CALL THE EMERALD ISLE NC POLICE at 252-354-2021 if you see a nesting or hatching turtle or anyone disturbing a marked turtle nest area

No flashlights or flash photography…If you see a nesting or hatching sea turtle please STAY QUIET, sit down and enjoy the show !!

Best Islands to Live On:Emerald Isle, North Carolina

Best Island to Live on:

EMERALD ISLE, NORTH CAROLINA

house-beach3

Although there are about a million reasons why living in Emerald Isle, NC is the best,
this article from Islands.com points out a few of those.

1. The Cost of Island Life.  Unlike remote islands, it takes a 15 minute car ride to get off the island
and to more affordable groceries, gas, and shopping.

2. On-the-beach Homes.  The costs of beach homes is way less here on Emerald Isle then if you went to a
highly developed beach resort area such as the Florida Keys or Maui.

3. How a Day Starts. “Just as you find on distant islands, people go to bed early on Emerald Isle.
The best part of the day is sunrise. By 6 a.m., a handful of people are on the beach with a coffee
cup in one hand and a dog leash in the other.”

4. The Weekend: Plenty of room on the beach for everyone to enjoy.

5. Way Out of Touch: Our island is not overly developed, their are no chain restaurants,
fast food drive thru, or massive hotels to block the views.

Emerald Isle is a terrific place to live or to come and visit.  Things are low key and time moves slow on Emerald Isle

If you have never been to Emerald Isle before, I seriously suggest you add it to your bucket list!
