Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve will host Nesting Sea Turtles of Franklin County Beaches
Lecture Series every Wednesday from 2-3 p.m. through the summer. The series will address the nesting habits
and biology of sea turtles; how the nests are identified and protected; and how visitors and residents can
help support a successful sea turtle nesting season.
Sea turtle nesting season began the first week of May and continues through October. Sea turtle nests have
been spotted on both St. George Island and St. Vincent Island, and volunteers and staff are monitoring area
beaches for their crawls.
Little St. George Island has been monitored by Apalachicola Research Reserve staff since 1988 and staff also
oversees the St. George Island Volunteer Turtlers, which help monitor the nests.
