SCDNR has set training protocol for the ’21 season. Sea turtle protection projects along the SC coast will be allowed to train new volunteers. Again, as during the 2020 season, there will be no public inventories.

At DeBordieu & Hobcaw S.C.U.T.E., we will accept new volunteers 18 years and older until May 1. There are a number of volunteers already in the certification training process that will have priority over a growing number of new recruits. If you are interested in signing up, please send an email to: and include your email and cell phone number.
