Restoring turtle population

Hawksbill turtle

Sea turtle nesting season runs from March to October. South Florida is home to three nesting species – all of which are endangered and protected by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Although the sea turtle population has been negatively impacted through the years, they are slowly recuperating.

Dean Michael Heithaus joined Sundial to talk about the research he is conducting on sea turtles around the world and how beachgoers can help protect their nests.
