Protecting Nesting Sea Turtles in Volusia and Flagler Counties, Florida.
Happy New Year! 2020

Where are they now?
Winter is upon us and our friends, the sea turtles, are gone from our beaches until next nesting season. So, where are they now and what are they doing? The Sea Turtle Conservancy can give us some insight! They maintain a Sea Turtle Tracking Program which follows the migration patterns of individual turtles.
Click on Marty the Migrating Turtle below to follow him to a list of turtles actively being tracked by the STC. Once you're there, click on the names of the turtles to view their paths. Be sure to zoom out so you can see how far they've come! And, be on the lookout for several turtles, like Ariel, who were released from Archie Carr National Wildlife Center, just south of us.
