This Thursday and Friday night you and your family can come out to the Hobe Sound Nature Center and watch as turtles lay their eggs on local beaches.
The females Loggerhead Sea Turtles will crawl out of the ocean and will carefully choose a spot to nest. She constructs a "body pit" by digging with her flippers and using her body. She will then lay her eggs; the average clutch sizes ranges from about 80 to 120 eggs. Once she is finished nesting, she will cover the eggs and return to the ocean.
This is a great event for Palm Beachers looking to experience first-hand one of the area’s signature creatures. It’s also perfect for kids looking to learn about local wildlife.
