Turtles of the Ocean

November finishes up the sea turtle season on Casey Key – Which is the most exciting time because all the baby turtles are hatching!!!!

Something to remember: Do not pet the sea turtles.
Seem crazy? It happens!

Also, the turtles will head toward the light, so don’t shine flashlights away from the water or you’ll confused the little guys.

It’s an experience of a lifetime to see them hatch. Casey Key is a great beach to walk from midnight to 4am looking for a hatching nest. Generally at this point in the season, one or two nests will burst forth each night!! So bring a few friends, spread out, and keep your phones handy to call and video the hatch.

We would love to see your photos and videos!! Please share them with us on here or on Facebook!
