2014: Nest #21

a loggerhead is 25 feet west of westernmost Beach access in Heritage Dunes in Seagrove. Look at the picture, so many people around her it is a wonder she nested. They even stamped all around it I guess so we would see it. Please people stay well back from a sea turtle on the beach to not go near her do not mess with the tracks or nest in any way. We know you care but we will really find the nest in the morning, we are out on the beach at 5:15 looking for tracks.
