The Skidaway Island Audubon Diamondback Terrapin Rescue program has a huge following here on the Island. The rescue program is led by an enthusiastic group of Audubon Volunteers who monitor the nesting, relocation of eggs and release of the baby turtles here on the island.
There were live baby turtles for everyone to touch and hold. Kids also learned how the mama turtles dig their nests, lay their eggs, and finally cover up the nest to protect their eggs. That is when the rescue program begins.
After the session kids and their parents had an opportunity to fish together from 9:30 until 11:00. Rods, reels and bait, were provided by Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) Skidaway. Our Google Photos album for the event is below.
