SANIBEL, Fla.– The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation (SCCF) announced the first sea turtle nest of the season, on the west end of Sanibel.
A loggerhead turtle, nicknamed ‘Cookie Dough’ by SCCF nested on the beach in Sanibel. She has previously made her nest on the same beach in 2017 and 2019.
Volunteers with SCCF marked the nest on Monday.
SCCF asks that beachgoers do their part to protect the turtles by filling in holes that could trap them, flatten sandcastles, and remove all furniture, gear, and toys at the end of the day.
