BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Natural disasters couldn't stop the sea turtles in Broward this year. The Broward County Sea Turtle Conservation Program documented a total of 3,587 nests in 2017, which surpassed the previous record of 3,567 nests set in 2016. This increase in nesting is largely a reflection of the increase in green turtle nesting activity, nearly twice the historic average. The County began monitoring Broward beaches for sea turtle nests in 1981, and local nesting numbers have been steadily increasing. Sea turtle nesting season runs from March 1st - October 31st annually.
