Sea Turtle Nest Monitoring

Truly a unique experience, during turtle nesting time on Bonaire, May through October, Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire offers the opportunity to join their staff and volunteers during beach monitoring sessions at Klein Bonaire three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 7:00 and 11:30 AM.

The adventure begins with a trip to Klein Bonaire on STCB’s new boat.  During the tour, plan to walk along the 2 km of beach with STCB’s turtle experts looking for turtle tracks, both from adult females who come on shore to lay their nests as well as from newly hatched sea turtles.

The cost for the field trip is $40.00 per adult and $20.00 for children under 12.  This financial contribution is used to fund STCB’s nest monitoring patrol and help safeguard Bonaire’s sea turtles.

Advance reservations are required, and attendance is limited.  To check availability, please contact Dr. Sue Willis at sue@bonaireturtles.org.
