Edisto Beach Loggerhead Turtle Project

EBLTP consists of a group of dedicated volunteers who spend their mornings during turtle season walking the town’s beaches to locate, mark and protect our sea turtle nests and hatchlings.

Established in 1982, the organization is a registered  501(c)(3)  in South Carolina and obtains annual authorization from the SC DNR to perform conservation activities. 

Edisto Beach Loggerhead Turtle Project is entirely staffed by volunteers. Your donation goes toward our efforts to help nesting turtles, hatchlings and stranded sea turtles make it to the ocean.


New volunteer positions are full for the 2023 season but check back with us next spring for upcoming volunteer opportunities.


You can make a difference on Edisto Beach and all over the world by donating to support the preservation of loggerhead sea turtles.
