Hey everyone, look who I spotted out and around 30A this morning...our very own South Walton Turtle Watch Team at Amavida Coffee in Rosemary Beach. They had a table filled with educational give-aways and some awesome Turtle Walkers waiting to tell you all about our nesting Sea Turtles and the Hatchlings we are waiting for this summer. Join them every Tuesday morning at 9 am for coffee, juice, and Turtle Talk. It adds something special to your breakfast hour. ... See MoreSee Less

This is a fantastic article that talks about the beauty of our nesting sea turtles along the Florida coastline. Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles focuses on awareness and education, so we don't sponsor "Turtle Walks" but there are resources listed (in the article) that do. We believe that once people SEE or are educated about sea turtle nesting and protection, it will only increase awareness of #cleandarkflat -- pick up your trash, reduce light interference, fill in your holes! ...

On a walk by our local South Walton Turtle Watch Team, they came upon this monster obstacle on our beaches. We have both Beach rules, codes for Beach Activities, and Beach Etiquette that we hope all will follow so that our beaches remain viable for all shore birds and marine life. Our code of conduct can be easily summed up as #leavenotrace or PLEASE LEAVE NO TRACE AT THE END OF YOUR BEACH DAY. We want and love our visitors to come and enjoy themselves but their is personal responsibility for cleaning up your area at the end of the day. We truly appreciate you participating in good stewardship while in the area. If you carry it down to the beach, deflate it and carry it out at the end of the day. The nesting turtles thank you. ...
