About our sea turtles and nesting on South Florida beaches

Sea turtle nesting season is here, if you are heading out to the beaches, please pay attention to nesting areas, they will be ropped off and clearly marked, avoid getting near these areas or trampling on the eggs!

Sea turtle nests at Hollywood Beach

Sea turtles nest mostly after dark, females emerge from the water in search for a spot to lay their eggs. They need their peace and quiet, give them a wide berth.

It is against the law to disturb turtles, nesting or otherwise, their eggs and their hatchlings!

You can learn more about sea turtles and how they nest.
