Turtle Conservation and Outing

Our beaches are among the most important turtle-nesting habitats in the western hemisphere. They are frequented by 3 species of threatened or endangered sea turtles: loggerheads, greens and leatherbacks.

From approximately May to October, you may join an outing to observe these amazing creatures during nesting season. Additional fees may apply.

Disney has contributed about $1.26 million to sea turtle conservation through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund. If you would like to give to the fund, your contribution will be welcome in the gift shop.

Turtle Troop

Kids ages 7 to15 will learn about sea turtles as they walk on the beach, identify tracks and discuss nesting behaviors. Afterwards, they can “adopt” a sea turtle, whose development can be tracked on the Internet.
