The Sunset Beach Turtle Watch Program is a private, nonprofit program that solicits volunteers to help monitor turtle nesting at Sunset Beach, North Carolina. Sunset Beach is the smallest of the Brunswick Beaches in North Carolina.

 

Turtles
Members of the SSBTHP hold permits from the Non-Game and Endangered Wildlife Section of the North Carolina Wildlife Section of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission to monitor nests sites, strandings and hatchings.

An interesting turtle fact ~
Nesting season begins on Brunswick County Beaches in early May thru August. Baby turtles begin hatching in late July and continue through October.

The informational programs - named "Turtle Time" - are free at 7 pm on Sunday evenings beginning in June and running during the nesting months at the Sunset Properties Parking lot - weather permitting. There is also a program on Wednesday at noon at Ingram Planetarium in Sunset Beach and a sea turtle exhibit at the Museum of Coastal Carolina in Ocean Isle, N.C.
