Harvard Club of Broward County

Private Turtle Hatchling Release Event



Tuesday, August 27

7:30 PM

Prepare yourself for the truly wonderful experience of witnessing endangered sea turtle hatchlings begin their great journey!

Guy Harvey Oceanographic Center ~ 3rd Floor Auditorium

8000 N Ocean Dr., Dania Beach, FL 33004

The Club's family-friendly evening program begins at 7:30 PM with networking, light bites, and libations at Nova Southeastern University’s Halmos College of Arts and Sciences-Oceanographic Campus.

At 8:00 PM, we'll enjoy a private 45-minute educational presentation on sea turtle conservation, the state of sea turtles, and the work carried out by the Broward County Sea Turtle Conservation Program at NSU.

Following the presentation our group will caravan down to Hollywood North Beach Park (parking lot on Greene St) to observe our sea turtle specialists release the hatchlings right on the sands of Hollywood Beach and wish them well as they make their journey to the wild blue ocean.

Even though the release takes place at night, don’t worry about not being able to see! There is always plenty of light on South Florida beaches at night. As such, no artificial lights, cameras, or video equipment are permitted at the release site. Authorized staff will have red LED flashlights to use periodically to aid in observing the release.



You must register to confirm your spot - NO WALK-INS!
Space is limited, so please register if you plan to attend.

Proceeds from tickets purchased for hatchling releases go directly toward furthering sea turtle conservation efforts at NSU. Because of this, all proceeds are treated as donations to the sea turtle program, and therefore no refunds will be given for any reason. Pre-registration and pre-payment are both required, and no walk-ins are accepted.


ADVANCE TICKETS - Your ticket includes the private networking reception, presentation, and sea turtle hatchling viewing.
