2012 NEST SUMMARY

The 2012 season will be one for the record books.  Even with two tropical storms, we managed to document a record number of false crawls and nests.  Amelia Island was visited by loggerhead turtles, green turtles and leatherback turtles this year.  The leatherbacks came in record numbers.  It is too soon to say if a trend is developing, but it sure has been busy the last several years.  The summary for 2012 is below.
