Turtle Talk & Volunteer Orientation
March 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Register online or as a walk-in from 1:30pm to 2:00pm. The presentation will begin promptly at 2:00pm and will last about an hour and a half with questions and Volunteer Orientation afterwards. Volunteer Orientation takes approximately half an hour.
Turtle Talk and Volunteer Orientation presentations are free and open to the public. The slide presentation is an introduction to sea turtles and includes a basic overview of the sea turtle species with concentration on species that commonly nest on the Brevard County beaches. The presentation also examines the causes of sea turtle population declines and the ongoing laws in effect to protect and prevent them from becoming extinct. Free information brochures will be available for attendees before and after the slide presentation, as well as some sea turtle props on display for viewing.
Volunteer Orientation will provide information about Sea Turtle Preservation Society, our mission, programs, and permitted activities. It will also go over our Volunteer Information Center and other important volunteer information.
Completion of the Turtle Talk and Volunteer Orientation presentations are a basic requirement for volunteers who are interested in participating in the STPS programs and is a prerequisite for any volunteer activity involving hands on work with turtles.
Attendees who have not registered online can register as a walk-in beginning at 1:30pm. Please feel free to bring friends and family who are interested in sea turtles.
