Nest Excavation for Sea Turtles (NEST) Program

NEST is a new, limited-edition program available during the summer in partnership with the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science (Frost Science).

Participants will learn about sea turtle conservation through a hands-on activity, nature walk on Virginia Key Beach and observing a nest excavation, an opportunity to look inside a sea turtle nest after it hatches.

Nest excavations take place three days after a sea turtle nest hatches and can only be completed by a person authorized by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. The Frost Science Education Team will talk guests through the process and purpose of a nest excavation while we excavate the nest (under permit #153).
