Sea Turtle Season is May 1 – October 31, 2017
Loggerhead sea turtles visit the West Coast of Florida and our Gulf Beaches each year between April and October to lay their nests. Only the mother turtle actually crawl onto the beach, usually under the cover & protection of darkness, to lay 80-120 eggs in a nest. You will see these nests marked off to protect them from human activity.
You can help protect our nesting sea turtles and other wildlife by leaving our beaches:
CLEAN – Leave no trash or beach furniture/toys on the beach overnight – this is required by the City’s ‘Leave No Trace’ ordinance.
FLAT – Sea turtles are made to swim, hence crawling on the beach is an effort. Please fill in all holes and flatten your sand castles.
DARK – Sea turtles and hatchlings navigate by the stars and moons reflection off the water. Flashlights, camera flashes, and building lights can disorient the turtles away from the sea.
All sea turtles and marine life are protected by law. Do not interfere with or disturb nesting turtles or hatchlings.
