Panama City Beach Turtle Watch was thrilled to partner with PCB Parks and Recreation as they offered Sea Turtle Tracks camp this week. This summer camp allowed the children to learn about sea turtles, perform mock stranding activities, become a turtle encountering obstacles left on the beach and witness the PCB Fire Rescue Safety Division rescue an accidentally hooked loggerhead sea turtle. The campers were very engaged and enthusiastic about learning what they can do to help provide the sea turtles a safe environment. They wrapped up camp with a visit to GWMI!
To quote one of the campers at the end of our second day, “this was definitely a core memory day”!
Before all of the adults start asking….sorry, this is only offered for the school age children 🙂
Thank you to our education outreach coordinator and all of the volunteers who helped make this first of a kind camp such a success!
