Turtle nesting season begins

Turtle nesting season begins Sunday and experts are hoping the four-year trend of high nesting continues. “We are hoping for the best,” she said. “Last year was a good season and we are hoping for another one.” After almost a decade of a low count of nests, females have been coming ashore in higher numbers since 2012. But Eve Haverfield, president and founder of Turtle Time, says that doesn’t mean 2016 will be another top year. She said a real pattern has not been established with nesting numbers.
