What to do if you see
a sea turtle nesting:

As we prepare for Sea Turtle Nesting Season in Emerald Isle, if you are lucky enough to see a nesting female, please help by doing the following:
 
• Report it ASAP to 252-354-2021 or 252-646-8292.
 
• Stay quiet - if you make noise,  she may return to the ocean without laying her eggs.
 
• No lights - if you shine lights on her or take flash photos, she may return to the ocean without laying her eggs.
 
• Stay down wind as not to disturb her.
 
• Remind other bystanders of the rules.
