According to WPTV.com, “As of Friday, 6,440 endangered loggerhead turtles had made nests along the 6.6-mile island stretch. That's 70 percent more loggerheads than the entire nesting season in 2011”, which is tremendous progress for these Florida natives. Jupiter Island beaches are ideal for loggerhead sea turtles given that they are characteristically darker than most other Florida beaches, not overly lit artificially by an abundance of condominium buildings or commercial property.
Jupiter Island Florida has always been an attractive beach-going paradise, and now is serving as the perfect haven for these sea turtles to nest their eggs. There really isn’t any other place on Earth quite like it.
