May 23, 2013. Our first nest of the season was found this morning on the west end near Sunnyside Beach. Volunteers moved 139 eggs to a higher spot nearby to protect the eggs from the surf. This was an unusual double-chambered nest. Refer to Nest
Information for details on the nest locations, and check our Facebook link below for pictures of our first nest. Contact us at Turtle Watch for more information about our program.
Important Note! The sea turtle lighting ordinance will be enforced beginning this season. Inspectors with Bay County and the City of Panama City Beach will notify beachfront homeowners whose lights are not in compliance. If you have questions, contact the Code Enforcement Office in your jurisdiction.
