Florida turtle nesting setting records this year

FLORIDA   --  Florida is seeing near record numbers of Sea Turtle nests this year.
Statewide researchers have counted 861 nests, each containing about one hundred eggs.
  
Twenty of them are on Pensacola Beach with still more in the Gulf Islands National Seashore and one aboard NAS Pensacola.
  
If you're checking out the nests at night park rangers ask that you use a red light.

And you're asked to report any hatchings by calling the number on the sign by the nest.
