Our beaches are very popular. Visitors from near and far enjoy them year-round. And some of those visitors may surprise you.

From May through October each year we share our beach with dozens of momma sea turtles. These endangered animals are looking for a safe place to make a nest where their babies can hatch, then find their way safely into the warm Gulf waters.

Thousands of hatchlings take their first steps right here on our shores each year. Many of them need a helping hand to reach the water. The many volunteers of the Share the Beach program give them just that.

Learn more about our marine friends and how you can recognize their nests, increase their chances of survival, and support the volunteers who Share the Beach with them each year.
