Endangered turtles on the Georgia coast had a successful nesting season from May to October. With over 1700 nests reported, the loggerhead turtles may be making a comeback. Last year there were less than 1600 nests reported.
A record number of sea turtle hatchlings have survived this nesting season. Over 1,700 nests were monitored on the Georgia coast by volunteers with the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. Terry Norton with the Turtle Center says this is the highest number of nests Georgia has ever had.
