Florida's Space Coast is a top spot for sea turtle nesting. In fact, 90 percent of all loggerhead nesting occurs in Florida, and a huge majority of this nesting takes place here on Florida's Space Coast. Sea turtle nesting season begins May 1 and ends October 31.
While visiting Florida's Space Coast, it's likely you will see an actual loggerhead nest. In years past, it's estimated that more than 20,000 nests were located on our 72 miles of coastline.

Seeing a sea turtle nesting is a great experience for all ages. With more than 15,000 to 20,000 sea turtle nests found on the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge’s beaches, it is important to protect sea turtle nests. The Sea Turtle Preservation Society conducts turtle walks during June and July. Walks start at 9 p.m. and can go as long as 1 a.m. It's possible that you may walk up to a half a mile each way in soft sand. The minimum age is 7-years-old, and reservations are required.
