Sea Turtle nesting season starts

The highly anticipated nesting season for sea turtles began May 1 and continues until October 31. Navarre Beach is home to four of the six of the species of sea turtles listed as threatened or endangered and protected by the Endangered Species Act; loggerhead, green, leatherback and Kemp’s ridley.

“Starting the first of May we have been patrolling the beach for nests,” Cathy Holmes of the Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Patrol said.  “This year because of the work going on to renourish the beach, any nests we find will have to be relocated to outside of the work area.”
