The Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach is seeing a massive number in leatherback sea turtle nests along the beach. Sea Turtle Nesting Season starts in March and continues until the end of October. 

The nearly 10 mile stretch of beach that the sea turtle research and rehabilitation center monitor has counted to date 69 nests, which is significantly more than normal for this time of year.  Each nest usually contains roughly about 100 eggs that require 45 days to 60 days to hatch. 

Juno Beach is one of the largest sea turtle nesting locations in the world. The main reason why Juno Beach is the most populated sea turtle nesting location is because of the close proximity to the Gulf Stream current that bends towards Florida.
