If you're lucky enough to live within close proximity to any one of South Jersey's beautiful beaches, then you know well and good that just because summer's gone doesn't mean strolls on the beach cease until the warm weather comes back.

Most likely, you find yourself strolling the beach during the colder months in an effort to unwind and take some time for yourself. There's nothing better than a beach stroll at sunset to help take a load off after a super stressful day.

The Marine Mammal Stranding Center located in Brigantine is asking that while you're on that stroll, you do them a solid and keep an eye out for some terrapins that usually find themselves on shore this time of year. The next time you decide to walk the beach, make sure to keep an eye out for sea turtles.

In a recent Facebook post, the Marine Mammal Stranding Center shared some crucial information about sea turtles that explains what happens to them when the ocean temperatures start to fall this time of year. In the post, they explain that it's not uncommon for you to spot a sea turtle that's not moving.

Before you panic, you should know that just because the sea turtle isn't moving, doesn't mean it's dead. If you come across a turtle on the beach, it could just be in shock from the cold. So, don't assume anything. You're advised to call the Marine Mammal Stranding Center's hotline at 609-266-0538. They will tell you what to do from there.

They've actually shared a complete list of steps to inform you what to do in the event you come across a sea turtle this winter. Check that out HERE.
