Found and Hatched Nests from the 2014 Season

Clearwater Marine Aquarium is honored to have been selected by Pinellas County to monitor nearly 26 miles of coast line and report on sea turtle nesting activity. Our staff engages in early morning patrols to locate new nesting sites and late night patrols to check existing nests for hatchlings. Our nesting staff watch the nests from 10 pm until 2 am and make sure the hatchlings make it to the water safely.

Since 2005, CMA's staff and volunteer team have released more than 60,000 sea turtle hatchlings! Listed below are the nests our team has located this season. Check back periodically for more nesting updates!
