On June 15th, a 40" loggerhead came ashore to lay her eggs directly in front of Margaritaville Beach Hotel, making it nest #8 for Pensacola Beach! The eggs are expected hatch anywhere from 45 to 60 days from now, just in time for our Sea Turtle Baby Shower this August!
As a reminder, PLEASE fill in any holes before leaving our beaches. Nesting mama's and hatchlings as well as well as beach-goers and first respondents can be seriously injured by falling victim to unfilled pits in the sand. Remember, lights out after 9:00pm and leave nothing but footprints to save our shell-covered companions
