The students will gain a greater understanding of sea turtles and some of the reasons they are endangered with an interactive discussion using props and visual aids at the Keeper's Quarters. From there we will head the beach to determine what makes a good nesting location for a sea turtle and look closer at the life of a sea turtle hatchling.
