Though many of our “Friends” volunteers have been vaccinated or will be, Covid safety precautions remain our priority for the 2022 sea turtle patrol season.

The following guidelines for our season have been accepted by SCDNR. Due to classroom training restrictions, no new volunteers will be added to the project. Public inventories will not be allowed on any beach in South Carolina. A minimal number of beach patrol volunteers will be working in isolation until Covid restrictions change. If Covid numbers continue to decrease, some previous experienced volunteers may be added and will be contacted by the project leadership at that time.
