Hawksbill turtles are quite beautiful and very rare in the Florida Keys. So spotting one here is a treat! Sherri Crilly, VP of SAT came across this beauty while snorkeling a patch reef close to shore in the Lower Keys last month. Hawksbill's only nest every 2-3 years, and only a few nests are documented annually.

If you spot a Hawksbill in the Keys, please email us at President@Save-A-Turtle.org, along with the location so that we may pass the sighting along to FWCC.
