SPI Turtle Releases & Nesting Season

Public Hatchling Releases

Hatchling releases are an incredible opportunity to see endangered Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles beginning their journey.

The number one priority is to make sure sea turtle hatchlings make it to the Gulf of Mexico as soon as they hatch. The chance of seeing a public hatchling release increases when a lot of nests are expected to hatch at the same time.

Releases happen during the season, from June to August. Nature is unpredictable and release notices, based on roughly estimated dates, are published on the nesting calendar.

Public Patient Release

Rescue, rehabilitation, and release of injured sea turtles is a key part of the Sea Turtle Inc. mission.

Patients stay in the rehab hospital to recover and complete their treatment. Once they’re healthy and strong, they are scheduled for release into the Laguna Madre or into the Gulf. Public patient releases are an exciting way to engage the community in the organization’s rehabilitation work.

Public patient releases most often occur in the warmer months However, winter release have occurred as the result of a cold stun.
