Adopt a Turtle Nest in Daytona Beach Florida!

By
Real Estate Agent with Florida Property Experts

In line with my series of posts on the problems with Florida's ecosystem, I decided to post a short little happy blog this time.

In one of my previous posts that was actually NOT part of the series, I mentioned that since we're allowed to drive on the beaches in the Daytona Beach area, we have to be careful not to disturb the sea turtle nests. This is actually a big problem. You can read that post here: Driving on Daytona Beach part 2 (Beach Conservation).

Well now the Volusia/Flagler Turtle Patrol is helping to ensure the continuation of this endangered species. For only $35, you can adopt a sea turtle nest! I don't know about you, but I think that is such a baby sea turtlescool idea!  

Although many of you who are reading this post don't live in this area, I know that most of you care about these special creatures, and many other problematic, environmental issues. If you'd like to get involved, you can adopt a sea turtle nest. For your $35 you not only help to keep the sea turtle population growing, but actually get a bumper sticker, a T-shirt and some other goodies as well.

Lisa-

Good heavens! Daytona is STILL allowing people to drive on the beach? For some reason I thought that was banned before I left FL (in 00)!

Thank you for sharing the link to adopt a nest... what a cute idea! I'll have to work that into my budget, too! :-)

Linda- I think it's a permanent thing, so you can do it whenever you want to.

Emily- The only places you can no longer drive are in Ponce Inlet and north of Ormond Beach. But there is a charge now.

Lisa - I love the idea of driving the Daytona beach.  I remember many years ago going to Daytona for spring break and driving the beach.  It was fun.

Lisa - I remember growing up and diving on Daytona Beach, Crescent Beach to the north of you as well. It is a challenge to protect sea turtles and keep the beach open.

Lisa, This is food for thought.  Sometimes the answer is open to bit of interpretation.
