BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – March 1 was the start of Florida’s sea turtle nesting season from Canaveral National Seashore in Brevard County, to Hollywood/Hallandale on the east coast.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reminds Space Coast beachgoers to play a key role in helping sea turtles nest and hatch successfully.

Keep beaches dark at night by not using flashlights or bright cellphones and turning out or shielding lights on houses and buildings. Clear beach furniture and boats away at the end of the day.

Nesting season begins on May 1 in all other coastal counties and there may be nests on the beach prior to these dates. Your actions can help protect turtles returning to our beaches.
