At right is our weekly sea turtle numbers, as recorded by the Boca Grande Sea Turtle Association. One thing to remember this week particularly, though, is to clean up the beach after any Fourth of July celebrations. Be mindful of all trash and fill in holes dug in the sand. Remove all beach furniture and toys as well, and watch that children and pets don’t dig marked nests.
If you see someone disturbing a nest or find a trampled nest, call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at (888) 404-3922 or dial *FWC from your cell phone.
