Adopt a Nest


Sea turtle nesting season is March 1 through October 31 on Florida's east coast. LMC monitors 9.5 miles of shore from Juno Beach up to Jupiter Island. Nesting surveys are conducted throughout the southeast United States to track the reproductive activities of green, leatherback and loggerhead sea turtles. The number of nests and nesting attempts made can help researchers understand reproductive behavior, and over time, help determine the overall health of each population by establishing trends in nesting activity.

2021 Nests:

Loggerhead: 10,836

Green: 3,947

Leatherback: 235
