Turtle Beach


Turtle Beach

The most common sea turtle in Florida is the LOGGERHEAD (Caretta caretta) that is named for its massive, block-like head. Other species are the GREEN TURTLE (Chelonia mydas) … LEATHERBACK (Dermochelys coriacea) …KEMP’S RIDLEY (Lepidochelys kempi) … and HAWKSBILL (Eretmochelys imbricata).

Sea turtles use beaches and the lower dunes to nest and lay their eggs. Sea turtles deposit an average of about 100 eggs in each nest and lay between 3 and 7 nests during the nesting season. When the new babies emerge from the sand, they head towards the moon light reflecting on the ocean. It is very important that houses and condos on the beach keep their outside lights low during nesting season.
