Green sea turtles nesting and hatching on Florida beaches...

Welcome to the Paul Rebmann Nature Photography Newsletter October 2023 edition.

An exciting sea turtle encounter is the perfect opportunity to resume after a long summer hiatus from this newsletter. This summer has been a particularly active one for sea turtle nesting in Florida and particularly on the Volusia and Flagler County beaches. At one point there were three turtle nests in front of our house and another very close just to the south of us.

One morning at the end of July I noticed the distinctive turtle tracks leading from the vegetation and across the beach into the ocean. At the same time I saw that the Volusia Turtle Patrol had just stopped to check out the new nest. I went down to the beach and took some photos of the nest and the tracks and later concluded that this was likely a green sea turtle that laid this nest, not the more common loggerhead turtles.

A month and a half later this nest hatched. To find out what happened next and see more of the photos visit the Paul Rebmann Nature Photography Green Sea Turtles blog post .
