Striving for a suitable habitat for sea turtles, people, the   ecosystem of Ocean Isle Beach and the surrounding waters.

 The Ocean Isle Beach Sea Turtle Protection Organization is an independent division of the Ocean Isle Museum Foundation, Inc.

Jim and Deb Boyce, Island Coordinators are licensed by the North Carolina Wildlife Commission, and Assistant Island Coordinator Deb Allen work with a team of approximately 50 volunteer Field Scientists in a year-round effort to protect sea turtles. Volunteers are trained to be Field Scientists and are especially active between May and late September, when female sea turtles dig their nests and lay their eggs. In addition to identifying and marking nests on Ocean Isle Beach, we also protect hatchlings from predators, transport sick and injured sea turtles to the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center at Topsail Island, and educate the public about these amazing creatures.
