Turtle experts optimistic over Treasure Coast nest numbers

STUART, FL. (WFLX) - -

(WFLX) - Sea turtle experts are optimistic that an "upward tick" in nest numbers last year will become an "upward trend" this year.

Turtle nesting season on the Treasure Coast began in early March and runs through October.

The season typically peaks in late June and early July when Loggerheads, by far the most numerous species locally, start nesting in large numbers.
