November 1, 2014. Our nesting season has come to an end. We found 37 loggerhead nests which produced 3115 hatchlings, representing the 3rd highest annual nesting and best ever hatchling numbers since Turtle Watch began in 1991!  Nearly 60% of the hatchlings that emerged at night were affected by lights from beachfront development, the greatest threat to sea turtles on our heavily developed beach.  Thankfully most of the disoriented turtles were rescued by volunteers. Refer to Nest Information for details on nest locations, incubation periods, and hatching success. See our Facebook page for pictures from the 2014 season, and contact us at Turtle Watch for more information about our program. See you next year!
