Sea Turtle Nest Totals

Sea turtle nesting season on Florida's east coast is from March 1 - October 31 each year.  Three species of sea turtle nest in Boca Raton:  Leatherback, Loggerhead, and Green.  Our team of Marine Turtle Specialists are out at sunrise every morning during nesting season to make sure that every nest is marked and protected.  The chart below shows the yearly nest totals for each species.  Loggerheads are the most common sea turtles nesting on our beaches.  Numbers in green indicate the highest number of nests recorded in a single year for each species; numbers in red indicate the lowest numbers recorded.
