CUIS currently has over 350 sea turtle nests on the island. Many visitors come to try to see the turtles come ashore at night to lay their eggs. There is no beach driving after sunset from March 1-October 31 because of the turtles and only red flashlights can be used at night on the beach. the turtles are protected under the Georgia Shoreline Protection Act. The visitor center provides red film for campers to put over their flashlights.
