Florida is home to many species of  Wildlife, some are plentiful, some are Endangered. Of the species that are Endangered, there are several varieties of Sea Turtles on the list. Our resident Sea Turtles include the Green, Leatherback and Loggerheads and for those of us who love them, this is a time to revel in, from now until October 31,  it is all about turtles in Florida.

This is the beginning of the  “lights out” time, for those lucky souls who live on the beaches of Florida Turtle nesting areas.  These observances are absolutely mandatory for the protection of the ” little joys” to come.  Last year was a record-setting nesting season for the Loggerheads and we are all hoping for a repeat this year.
