In addition to the Topsail Turtle Project volunteer flip-flops on the sand every morning through the end of August we also rely heavily on our locals and visitors to report any sighting of nesting turtles, as well as any turtles in any kind of distress. Please report all local sea turtle activity to our Director of Beach Operations, Terry Meyer at: 910-470-2880. If unable to reach her you may also contact our Director, Jean Beasley at: 910-470-2800.
