It’s official, the first sea turtles have landed on the shores of Sarasota County, just in time for Earth Day. Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium’s Sea Turtle Conservation & Research Program (STCRP) documented the first nest of the season today, April 22, 2021. The nest is located in Venice, just north of the public Venice Beach area. Melissa Bernhard, Mote Senior Biologist and Conservation Manager said, “We’re looking forward to another successful season for sea turtles. We’ve seen incredible growth in nesting locally in the last decade, and we hope to see these threatened animals continue to increase their numbers.”
