Dewees Island Turtle Team

Dewees Island Turtle Team 2020

Thanks for volunteering to walk for the Dewees Island Turtle Team!  Here is the book with details, and here's our video showing the turtle team from above!  For more details on SC Turtle patrol please click here or stop by the nature center.  If for some reason you can't walk on your assigned day, please call Carey at 703-282-3111 or Judy at 843-259-1713. It's really helpful if you text Judy when you're done so everyone can get on with their day.

Call/text Judy as soon as you see tracks: 843-259-1713.

Update 2020

We are still working around the breach, and there are nesting shorebirds at both ends of the island.  If you are signed up to walk please read below and email [email protected] if you have any questions.

Please remember

  1. Walk the high tide line from the previous night.
  2. Text Judy as soon as you find a crawl.
  3. Please be mindful of resting birds near the shorebird nesting areas and do not disturb.
  4. Don’t walk into bird nesting areas following a crawl.
  5. If the tide is high and you can’t walk the most recent high tide line without flushing/disturbing the resting shorebirds please turn around and let us know.
  6. Dogs should be leashed or under effective voice control during patrol near nesting areas.
  7. Please stay as far away as possible from established sea turtle nests; predators will follow your scent to the nest.  
  8. Glance at established nests for evidence of predation, erosion, or hatching.  Our first nests will hatch in late June.
  9. Help us collect trash and report on the Clean Swell app. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnHU6TsbHQE.  Please let Lori know if you need a re-suable trash collection bag.

South Walkers – Please start at the breech - just north of Osprey Walk and walk south to the creek after the second to last dock.  Text Judy to report clear before you turn around to walk back.  Please note; if you walk 3 hours on either side of high tide you may not make it south past the shorebird resting/nesting area without distubing birds, that is ok to turn around at this point.  Text Judy to report clear before you turn around to walk back as well as a pin if you did not make it to the south end docks.

North Walkers – Please start at Lavender Point beach access.  Once on the beach start on the North end at the power lines & Velvet Creek and walk as far as you can without going into the water or disturbing resting shorebirds toward the breech neare Osprey Walk.  Please note; if you walk 3 hours on either side of high tide you may not make it past the shorebird nesting area without disturbing birds, that is ok to turn around at this point.  Text Judy to report clear before you turn around to walk back as well as a pin if you did not make it to the breech.
