What Do Our Volunteers Do?
Frequently, people offer to volunteer with our group.  So, what do our volunteers do?  In April of each year, we hold our organizational meeting.  At that time, volunteers select a section of beach that is approximately 1 mile in length, and a day of the week, and commit to walking that section, on that day, at daybreak.  
During turtle season (May 1 - August 31), our volunteers are usually the first ones on the beach each morning.  We cover the the island from the south boundary of Ft. Clinch State Park to the north boundary of Amelia Island State Park on the south end.  The entire length is approximately 9 miles.  
If you are not an early riser, this is not the job for you.  Daybreak is the best time to see turtle crawls clearly.
Throughout the summer months, regular volunteers may go on vacation.  In that event, we need subs to fill in.  Some people prefer to substitute, as they are able to see different sections of the beach on different days.  Click the link below for more information on volunteering.

New volunteers for the 2016 meeting must attend our organizational meeting on April 13, 2016.  For more information click here

If you are getting a new license plate, select the attractive sea turtle plate featuring a loggerhead hatchling crawling towards the surf. If it is time to renew, make the switch to a sea turtle plate for your vehicle.

The Sea Turtle License Plate is available in Florida through your local Tax Collectors Office or County Tag Agency. Follow the link below for contact and address information for the offices in your area.

The Sea Turtle License Plate was first offered for sale in February 1998 and quickly became one of the most popular specialty plates in Florida, raising over $1 million annually. At just $17.50 per tag, the turtle plate is also one of the least expensive specialty plates in Florida.

Proceeds generated by sales of the turtle plate go to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Marine Turtle Protection Program to support research and management activities related to Florida's sea turtles. In addition, a portion of the revenue is distributed to CCC, which then redistributes the funding through the competitive Sea Turtle Grant Program to support turtle projects in the areas of research, education and conservation that benefit Florida sea turtles
