Sea Turtle Team Celebrates End of 2022 Season
On Dec. 12, the SCCF sea turtle team celebrated a successful 2022 sea turtle nesting season at Point Ybel Brewing Company with some of this year’s 85 volunteers.
The end-of-season party was originally scheduled for mid-October before Hurricane Ian delayed the gathering. The event provided an opportunity for SCCF sea turtle volunteers to catch up, share memories from the summer, and look excitedly toward next season.
In 2022, 769 loggerhead and 17 green sea turtle nests were laid, and 35,803 hatchlings emerged on Sanibel and Captiva's beaches.
