St. Joseph Peninsula Turtle Patrol & Forgotten Coast Sea Turtle Center

Through our interactions with visitors to the Forgotten Coast Sea Turtle Center, beach-goers during nesting season, and inquirers from around the world, we are working hard to educate the public about the importance of sea turtles and the ways we all can help them.

Leave No Trace & Keep Lights Off

Help our visiting sea turtles at night:

  • Clear the way at the end of the day by removing all beach equipment.
  • Fill in holes and level sand sculptures.
  • Turn lights off or use turtle-friendly red lights.
  • Our sea turtles dig the beach CLEAN, FLAT, and DARK.
