Sea turtle nesting season has started to pick up speed. SCCF’s current nesting numbers are 60 on Sanibel, and 25 on Captiva.
“So far, the counts are on pace with 2019, a strong year that finished with 848 total nests,” said SCCF Coastal Wildlife Director Kelly Sloan. “It’s still too early in the season to know how things will shake out, but we are hopeful for another great year.”
On May 7, SCCF daytime tagging intern Hollis Hatfield, pictured here, found her first loggerhead nest of the season!
