The Reptile Round Up program offered by the Bald Head Island Conservancy is an excellent opportunity for families to learn about the reptiles that inhabit the island. During this program, Conservancy educators will introduce participants to the unique adaptations that help island reptiles survive. The program covers a range of topics such as the differences between venomous and non-venomous snakes found on the island, the unique maternal care provided by alligators, the food habits of box turtles, and more.
The program includes a live reptile encounter where participants can meet and interact with various reptiles found on the island, such as turtles, lizards, and snakes. This is a great opportunity for kids to get up close and personal with these fascinating creatures and learn about their behaviors and characteristics.
The program is a hands-on class, where participants will have the chance to touch and handle live animals. Parents or guardians must accompany children during the program, and they will need to purchase a ticket for themselves and their children.
It’s important to note that the Conservancy is not a sea turtle rehabilitation center and does not have sea turtles in their collection. However, this program provides an excellent opportunity for families to learn about the Sea Turtle Protection Program on Bald Head Island and gain a greater appreciation for the unique wildlife found on the island.
