Here’s the latest numbers on the scoreboard for the sea turtle nesting numbers on beaches on 10 miles north of Juno Beach onto Jupiter Island.

So far this year has been a record year for the nests that are counted by volunteers and officials at the The Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach.

The nesting season started strong with a late-February visit by a nesting loggerhead.

The nesting season runs from March 1 –  Oct. 31.
