    It has been a banner year at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort as far as sea-turtle nesting goes. The nesting season begins in March and this is the first time in the resort’s history that we have had 380 loggerhead sea turtles nests by June along our 7-km stretch of beach that includes Disney’s Vero Beach Resort.

    Families can get in on the fun and learn more about the amazing creatures during the Animal Programs’ Meet-a-Turtle-Expert event that happens at 7 a.m. daily down on the beach.

    A turtle researcher takes guests on a fun-filled adventure as they look for clues about sea turtle activity, mark nests and collect data. Kids can join Turtle Troop, a fun and educational experience that combines crafts and a walk on the beach to see a sea turtle nest up close. There’s also evening presentations for resort guests that explain Disney’s overall commitment to sea turtle conservation. Aren’t they too cute?!
