SCCF Loggerhead Nest Boil

SCCF Coastal Wildlife Director Kelly Sloan was on beach patrol on Captiva Island when she came upon the rare opportunity to see a loggerhead sea turtle nest ...

This is really awesome to watch!!

Sea turtle hatchlings have been racing from the sand to the sea on Sanibel and Captiva islands recently, but it’s rare that the extraordinary moment is caught on camera.  Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation Director Kelly Sloan was patrolling Captiva Island on June 24 when she noticed some movement happening at a nest. Kelly watched the nest as it began to boil, or erupt, with loggerhead sea turtle hatchlings.

The timing was just perfect, enjoy!!
