Wrapping up a year like no other

Panama City Beach experienced above average loggerhead nesting and record green nesting in 2020, but hatchling production suffered due to numerous storms that flooded many nests. This loggerhead hatchling is from our last nest of the season (picture courtesy of Turtle Watcher Angela Barros). See History for details on each nest, including location, hatching success, and incubation times. Our work feels like a footnote in this year of pandemic and political strife. Take care of yourself, don’t forget to vote, and we will look forward to better times in 2021.
