Sea Turtle Nesting Season Begins

Posted on Tuesday, May 1, 2012

Each year from May 1 – October 31, there are four species of Florida sea turtles that nest along the beach in South Walton and Destin, FL . The Loggerhead, Green, Leatherback and on occasion, Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle will make their way to the beach and nest along the dunes.  Sea turtles are protected under the Endangered Species Act and need our help to keep their populations rebounding.

When you enjoy the beaches be sure to take all of your belongings off the beach each night, fill in any holes you dig and remove trash so they may safely make it to the dunes. If you're enjoying the beach at night, consider using a turtle safe flash light filter so turtles are not d isoriented or scared, and safely find their way back to the water.  Visit http://turtlesafeproducts.com for more info or to order some for your next visit. 

More importantly, if you see a nesting sea turtle in action or come across a nest, look but do not touch. Sea turtles return to the same beach they were born to nest. Let's do our part in welcoming them home! Check out the full story on sea turtle nesting season on Walton Outdoors.
