Junior Marine Biologists


Junior Marine Biologists are 4th-8th grade students.  The students participate in camp-outs, nest relocation, nest escavations and hatchling releases. They learn to collect and report data like a Marine Biologist and have lots of hands-on sea turtle experiences. 

The program is offered November  - January each year.  Look for our Junior Marine Biologists helping out at our hatchling releases!

We offer local students scholarships for this program. If you know of a local candidate, or if you are interested in sponsoring a student for this project please contact us! 


Our philosophy is that Environmental Advocates love the ocean and environment because of our positive experiences that have bonded us to them. Help us give positive environmental experiences to young people by sponsoring one of our Education Programs!
