It is officially fall along the beautiful Emerald Coast! Here at the Sea Oats Motel in sunny Destin Florida, we’re excited to welcome guests arriving for a fun and relaxing week at the beach!
It is not only our guests who enjoy these sugar white sand beaches, however, so do the many nesting sea turtles that lay their eggs on South Walton and Destin, Fla. beaches each year.
Our guests that arrive in early fall may get to see baby sea turtles actually hatch then make their way to the Gulf!
Every single species of sea turtle is either endangered or threatened, so it’s important that we help protect them as they come on shore. We encourage guests to fill in any holes you dig and remove all tents, chairs, umbrellas and trash from the beach each night to ensure momma sea turtle can access the dunes safely. If you find a nest the next morning, look but don’t touch. Ensuring the eggs reach maturity and hatch is the first step in improving the sea turtle population.
Families can contact Audubon Adventures or Nonie’s Ark Animal Encounters, which offers night walks for children and parents to learn about sea turtles and nesting, during the fall months. Your crew may even get to help wildlife officials smooth the sand with rakes and fill in foot prints to ensure that the babies reach the warm waters where they will start their amazing adventures.
