Exercise Caution on Beaches during Sea Turtle Nesting Season

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (April 16, 2024) – Florida is home to many species of sea turtles that nest on our coastal beaches. Charlotte County hosts three species of sea turtles, loggerhead, green, and a few Kemp’s ridley sea turtles. When visiting Charlotte County coastal beaches, please give nests space when setting up at the beach, fill in any holes created and knock down sandcastles. If on the beach at night, do not use flashlights or cell phone lights as they can deter?nesting?or confuse hatchlings returning to the water. 
Learn more about sea turtle nesting season at under the sea turtle section.
