Green sea turtles don’t start nesting until June (Photo by Bill DiPaolo)
As usual in early June, nesting green sea turtles are making their first appearances on north county beaches to lay their eggs.
Leatherbacks and loggerheads start at the beginning of the March 1 – Oct. 31 nesting season.
The nests on the 10 miles of beach north of Donald Ross Road are counted every season by officials and volunteers at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center.
The scoreboard in the photograph is on the east side of A1A across from Loggerhead Park, just north of Donald Ross Road.
