A Recognized Steward of Our Natural Environment
Palm Island Resort has a long-lasting commitment to preserving the natural environment, marine life and wildlife of Florida. Visitors have the opportunity from May to October to participate in sea turtle awareness walks as hatchlings appear along our beaches. Manatee and dolphins may 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 information.
Sea Turtle Nesting Season
MAY 1 – OCTOBER 31 — Please make sure to follow these simple guidelines to ensure that the sea turtles laying nests and the hatchlings coming from the nests have a chance to do their job.
