Kick off for the 2019 Sea Turtle Nesting Season

Sea turtle season has officially started and each of the Dutch Caribbean Islands has reported their first hatchlings of the year. Officially running between April and December, with slight variances between the islands, a variety of different species of sea turtles use these islands to lay their nests. Although there are officially 5 different species which call these waters home, only 4 have been known to nest here: loggerhead, leatherback, green and hawksbill turtles.
