|Palm Island Resort has a long-lasting commitment to preserving the natural environment, marine life and wildlife of Florida. Guests are encouraged to visit the Resort’s Nature Center and to learn of ongoing preservation projects. Visitors have the opportunity from May to October to participate in sea turtle awareness walks as hatchlings appear along our beaches. Manatee and dolphins can also be seen, along with native birds such as bald eagles, herons, osprey and pelicans. During the winter months shorebirds such as black skimmers and least terns call the Resort, home.
Palm Island Resort’s Naturalist conducts informative nature programs on the island for resort guests and residents including topics such as Manatee Awareness, Shore Birds, Sea Turtles and more.
No visit would be complete to Palm Island Resort without reserving some time spent with our naturalist.
Should you wish to explore nearby wildlife trails, parks or areas for bird watching, please contact our Activities Coordinator for suggestions and directions.
