During the last several years the Treasure Beach Turtle Group (TBTG) has done an amazing job of turning around an area known for hunting sea turtles and their eggs to preserving them now making Treasure Beach the second largest recorded sea turtle nesting area in Jamaica.
Spend from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. or 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. walking the nesting beach in search of Hawksbills nesting or eggs hatching. Tasks include measuring the turtle tracks, tagging the nests, counting the hatched eggs in the nests and collecting data. We will pick you up at your accommodation and bring you to the nesting beach where you will be briefed by your guide on the appropriate way to interact with the sea turtles and hatchings. You then assist your guides in patrolling the beach looking for nestings or hatchings.
