Pay it Forward: Myrtle Beach State Park

Special Agents: Volunteers help keep beaches clean and protect turtles at Myrtle Beach State Park

My son Noah and I love Myrtle Beach. We keep returning for the glorious sunrises, leisurely walks along the boardwalk, the twirling SkyWheel and the kind, southern charm of the locals. However, On our last trip, we decided we wanted to help the sea turtle population.

Although it may seem obvious to some travellers, sadly not everyone cleans up their trash. This puts wildlife in danger, especially sea turtles. Many beaches in the southern United States protect turtles, including South Carolina, whose state reptile is the loggerhead sea turtle.
