Sea Turtle Nests at Wicker Inn

It’s Sea Turtle season! There are currently three turtle nests on the Wicker Inn beach. Sea turtles are an endangered species and are highly protected on the Gulf Coast beaches. Longboat Key Turtle Watch volunteers walk the beach daily to ensure the endangered species’ nests are undisturbed. It is important to remove all of your garbage and belongings and leave only your footprints behind. No flash photography is allowed. Also it is important to turn off or shield lights visible from the beach.
