Florida: Gorgeous Beach Day!
July 16, 2016 2 Comments
Today was a gorgeous day at Sebastian Beach, Florida. The weather and water are warm, and the sea turtles are busy nesting at night. In fact as of today, the area has recorded the second highest count ever of documented sea turtle nests. Scientists rope off the nest sites to keep the eggs safe until the turtles hatch. Great time of year!
UPDATE: Final sea turtle nesting totals at Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge on August 27, 2016, are: Loggerhead – 20,376; Green – 1,295; Leatherback – 72, and Kemp’s Ridley – 1.
