Embracing our community

Florida Sea Turtles share the beach

The beaches of Palm Beach County are not just a favorite spot for tourists. Each year they are home to the highest number of Leather-back Turtle nests and the second highest number of Loggerhead and Green Turtle nests in the country.

Sea turtles usually nest at night from early March to late October. One of the biggest dangers to nesting females and hatchlings comes from beachfront lighting. Visible artificial light can deter females from nesting and also interfere with the hatchlings journey to the sea. The hatchlings are attracted to the source of brightest light, optimally; the reflection of natural light on the water, and the brightness of a spotlight, streetlight, or even a flashlight can confuse the hatchlings and misdirect them from their trek to the ocean, threatening their survival. Less than 1 in 1,000 sea turtles survive to adulthood.

Beaches are monitored by various local groups permitted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. For more information on participating in a guided walk and to learn more about Sea Turtles, contact the nearby Gumbo Limbo Nature Center at 561-338-1473.
