 Citizen’s Scientist Program - Join us for 6 nights

You are eligible to participate in this program with the purchase of a one-year membership.

The program is unlike any other marine conservation program!  If you love the environment and would like to work hands-on in the conservation of an endangered species and their habitats then you need to take a look at our program and/or share this with someone who fits this criteria. You don't have to be a Ph.D. Biologist or a Government Official! You just have to be an active member of our organization!
Spend 6 nights side by side with our rescue staff and experience what it’s like to be on the front lines of conservation of an endangered species! Our guests observe firsthand the perils hatchlings face on their critical journey to find the ocean. Life for sea turtles on a heavily urbanized nesting beach requires multiple conservation strategies. Unfortunately, that will always involve some form of regulated human interaction to aid in their population maintenance and possible population recovery.
Our rescue program plays a vital role in the conservation strategy for the Broward County sea turtle population recovery. We have saved the lives of over 240,000 sea turtle hatchlings disoriented away from the ocean by urban lighting. This remarkable accomplishment is attributed to being at the right place at the right time. The methodology is consistent because of how we deploy customized real-time data analysis.
