Welcome Turtle Season

Welcome Turtle Season!

It’s that time of year again on Sanibel! Yes, it’s turtle season! During the season, which runs roughly from the first of May through the end of October, there is likely to be hundreds of turtle nests on Sanibel and Captiva; which means it is important to find out a little bit more about these charming visitors to the local area.

While it may be somewhat difficult to actually spot loggerhead turtles, you can usually see their tracks well enough, especially in the early morning on the beaches, so do take care if you are headed out for morning run or walk along the beach. Once the little turtles have hatched they will hustle for the water, using the light of the horizon to guide their path. Considering the many hazards they can encounter along the way and the fact that only about one in one hundred eggs will eventually mature into an adult turtle, they can certainly use all of the help they can receive.

Loggerheads are actually the most common type of sea turtle to be found in the state. The adults can grow to more than three feet in length and can weigh as much as 350 pounds when fully grown. These amazing creatures can easily travel thousands of miles from their feeding grounds to the local beaches where they nest during the current season. Interestingly, females will always nest on the very same beaches where they were actually born; meaning the visitors to be seen in the coming weeks and months are actually original residents! These females can nest as many as seven times during the season.

Incubation for the baby turtles takes between 55 and 65 days. During this time, it is actually the temperature of the nest that will determine the gender of the turtles. Warmer sand will primarily produce females while cooler sand will result in primarily male turtles. The baby hatchlings are initially only about two inches in length.

During the season it is important to be aware of some of the laws that govern the hatchlings. Due to the fact that the hatchlings will emerge at night and then be guided to the water by the horizon, it is imperative that interior and exterior lines not shine on the beach. Also, there must be nothing left on the beach that would cause interference with nesting. These rules are effective from 9pm until 7am during turtle season.
