What a HOT, FUN time we all had learning about Folly’s turtles and their beach environment at Saturday’s Homecoming celebration. 75-80 folks, mostly kids as we hoped, came to the beach to “think like a turtle.”
Volunteers from Folly Beach Turtle Watch, Charleston Surfriders and Tideland Tours presented activities highlighting the differences between Loggerheads and Leatherbacks, the identification of what belongs on the beach and what doesn’t, and the importance of healthy dunes to sea turtle nesting, hatching and protection.
Thank you to ALL who were with us for welcoming Folly’s Turtles Home!
