So much fun at the #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital today! There were a ton of people there, but the volunteers and presenters did a great job of funneling everyone through to the next learning station. I’ve been wanting to visit the sea turtle hospital for years and finally got to go today with our Zoo Crew pals! #homeschoolwithfriends #zoologyclub

Smiling from cheek to cheek because what could be more magical and heartwarming than releasing a rehabbed green sea turtle, an endangered species, back into the ocean for a second chance at life. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Another reminder that animals are truly one of the greatest gifts to the earth and ought to be protected at all costs, which starts with protecting the land and environments in which they live. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital #seaturtle #seaturtlemedicine #seaturtlerescue #vetmed #vetschool #vetstudent #protectouroceans #marinelifematters #wildlifeconservation

Loggerhead nest excavation and hatchling release 🐢!! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ 72 hours after a nest “boils” or hatches, a local volunteer effort will go in and excavate the nest. The volunteers gave us vet students the fortunate opportunity to excavate one of the nests. We went in and counted shells, unfertilized eggs, live and deceased babies. Many times you’ll find live hatchlings that haven’t made it out of the nest yet and need a little extra help, which we lucky enough did. Due to the recent hurricane Dorian, the sand was extra wet and compact making it difficult for these last little ones to scurry out of the nest towards the ocean. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ What a privilege it was to help them along 💚 ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #loggerhead #seaturtle #seaturtlemedicine #conservationmatters #wildliferehabilitation #vetmed #vetschool #protectmarinelife #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital ⁣⁣

ازالة العوالق من على جسم السلاحف بهذه الطريقة ربما يؤدي الى نفوق السلحفاة فالتصرف الصحيح هو التواصل مع الجهات المسئولة او اعادتها للبحر فنتمنى نشر هذه الثقافه حتى نحافظ على حياة السلاحف ونبتعد عن الممارسات الخاطئه @sce.bh @agri_bah #seaturtles   #seaturtleconservation #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital #seaturtlerelease   #topsailisland #northcarolina  ⁠  #loggerhead #greenturtle   #turtlepower   #rescue ⁠⠀

نفوق ٣ سلاحف وهي الحاله الثالثه لهذا العام ونتمنى من ان نحصل على تفسير يكشف لنا السر وراء نفوق السلاحف حيث كانت التهم في السابق جاهزة لصيادي الروبيان فالان هناك قرار تم بموجبه منع صيادي الروبيان فهل توقف نفوق السلاحف الا يبدو ان الامر يحتاج لدراسة وبحث قبل اتهام طريقة صيد بعينها @sce.bh #seaturtles   #seaturtleconservation #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital #seaturtlerelease   #topsailisland #northcarolina  ⁠  #loggerhead #greenturtle   #turtlepower   #rescue ⁠⠀

WE WATCHED THE BABY SEA TURTLES HATCH! And it was amazing. The pictures aren’t great because you can’t use flash but oh my goodness. One even crawled over my foot! It is such an amazing example of God...the eggs can feel the vibrations of the waves through the sand and know when the tide is high enough to come out. We were able to ‘help’ about 50 babies to the sea. Such an amazing experience to share with my kids! #seaturtles #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital #topsailisland #homeschool #thirdgradehomeschool #firstgradehomeschool

Sage Island has had the opportunity to work with many ocean centric businesses that work tirelessly to protect everything that relies on the water. Last night, a sea turtle nest was excavated on Wrightsville Beach and 11 baby sea turtles made their way home. We are so grateful for the volunteers that were on hand to help and for the businesses that continue to work to make our world a better place.✨ #seaturtlecamp #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital #wrightsvillebeach

As a volunteer for the #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital I walk a small section of our 26mi beach looking for sea turtle tracks during nesting season. On my last two walks I’ve seen false crawls which means they came up but didn’t lay eggs. But it’s always a beautiful sight to see those flipper tracks in the sand. # What’s not beautiful is all the disgusting trash that tourist leave on the beach! You name it, I’ve picked it up. So next time you’re at the beach,just clean up your shit. Tell others to pick up their shit. If we all pitch it, we can be a part of the solution. 🌊

After four years of being sub turtle patrollers we finally found a nest! What an amazing experience! Our friend Brittany @prettyhandygirl is here on vacation so she came along with us (I think she's our good luck charm!) We had to relocate the eggs because the nest was too close to the high tide line. In about 50 days we'll help escort our babies to the ocean!! Well worth waking up at 430 am!! 🐢🌞😍 #seaturtlepatrol #topsailisland #nccoast #nccoastlife #seaturtles #seaturtlenest #lovelivinghere #coastalexploring #topsailbeach #wildlifeconservation #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital #earlymorningwalk

Swipe to see what 193 Cigarette butts look like ➡️ I had a Very upsetting walk on North TopSail Beach last night. My husband and I wanted to walk the beach for our anniversary last night and ended up cleaning up after a bunch of very disrespectful people instead. Come on people we are better than this!!!! Teach your children better than this. What if everyone did this and no one cleaned it up ? This is what your beach would look like . Think of the sea life than depend on you to not feed them this garbage. I don't care what you smoke, drink, or eat but take it with you when you leave it's that simple. #topsailbeach #topsailisland #surfcitync #ncbeach #beachtrash #beachwalk #recycle #savetheocean #4ocean #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital

Turtle on a roll! Volunteers with Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center escort a loggerhead turtle named “Big Guy” down to the ocean where he was released last week. Our first and second grade students cheered on the 20+ sea turtles as they paddled into the surf break and disappeared beneath the waves. Wishing these turtles a safe return to the sea and all students a safe summer vacation! #loggerheadturtle #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital #ncherps #finalfieldtrip #schoolsoutforsummer

It's #WorldOceansDay ! 🌊 What's your favorite NC beach? Tell us below! 👇⁣ ⁣ Life began in the ocean 3.5 billion years ago, and as 71% of our planet's surface, it's still home to most major forms of life. 🌎 ⁣ ⁣ We love #oceans for different reasons. 💙 For some, our smallness by their shores is calming and clarifying. For others, the mysteries of their depth fuel our curiosity to look deeper. 🗝 For many, their abundance of creatures and plants embodies a playful power we admire. 🐬 Whatever the reason, the oceans feed our bodies and our spirits, and they deserve our love and respect. ⁣ ⁣ While you're out in the salty #sun this #summer , think about the ocean as a single being. ✌🏼 Pick up litter wherever you are, choose organic sunscreens, volunteer with sea turtle rescues like #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital , volunteer to plant grasses along dunes, and notice the wonder of a topsy turvy life. 💧⁣ ⁣ Come learn about the oceans at #visitNCMNS in our Coastal North Carolina exhibit! See massive whale skeletons, dioramas of the coast's diverse ecosystems, and more! Sea ya soon. 😉 #seaturtleweek

No matter where I am, I always find some form of animal rescue 🐢 •••••••••• Learning about sea turtles at the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital was so incredible. I was educated on a form of animal rescue that I don’t see at the APL. We saw a turtle who was blinded after being struck by a boat, a turtle with an air bubble in his back that gives him buoyancy issues, and multiple turtles who came in covered in barnacles and moss (a sign that they are in dire need of help). We have an impact on animals that aren’t just the cats and dogs that we see at the shelter or in our neighborhoods. The ocean and its creatures suffer the consequences for our choices on land. https://www.seaturtlehospital.org • • • #topsailisland #topsailturtleproject #karenbeasleyseaturtlehospital #northcarolina #animalrescue
