This Beach County Smashes All-Time Record for Sea Turtle Nests 21,800!

Palm Beach County in Florida has already shattered the record for the number of turtle nests recorded during a single nesting season on Juno Beach, with three months of counting still to come.

By Sunday, the 9.5-mile Juno Beach in the northern part of the county had seen 21,872 mostly-loggerhead sea turtle nests, compared to an end-season total of 18,132 nests last October.
