Spying On Loggerhead Nests

Ever seen loggerhead turtles hatch and race for the ocean? No? Well here’s your chance. A turtlecam has been approved by USFWS and installed on a loggerhead turtle nest on Big Pine Key in the Florida Keys. The nest is due to hatch during any of the nighttime hours in the next few days, so if you find yourself with a bout of insomnia, this might be a good way to spend the time.

Even if you miss the event several nests are planned for inclusion on the cam and recordings of the hatch should be posted after they occur. Happy watching!
