Nesting season has arrived in Florida! Every year, sea turtles and water birds migrate to the coasts of the Sunshine State to lay their eggs.
An Oregon beach recently became the final resting place of a rare sea turtle, which had washed ashore carrying a whole ecosystem along with it. The Seaside Aquarium, which recovered the animal, reported that the 75-pound loggerhead was discovered on the south end of Manzanita Beach on a Saturday morning. The aquarium also stated that upon receiving photographs of the turtle, it became clear that it had been dead for quite some time before washing ashore.
Sea turtle hatchlings are beginning to make their way onto Florida beaches for the start of nesting season. But experts are warning beachgoers to be careful as they enjoy the sights of these endangered species.
