Sea Turtle Nesting Season


Loggerhead sea turtles are an endangered species and they need our cooperation in order for even a few of the precious hatchlings to survive. From May through October these turtles lay their eggs on our beaches.


As the turtles hatch, they travel toward the brightest light, which in nature is the moon.

It is important for visitors and residents to keep in mind that young hatchlings get disoriented by artificial light coming from homes causing them to travel in the wrong direction where they may never make it to the ocean.
