This is one of the most beloved animals on the planet… sea turtles. Discussions and debates over all sorts of local issues occur but when sea turtles enter the discussion, most agree – “we like sea turtles”, “we have nothing against sea turtles”.
How cool, there is nothing wrong with other animals, but how cool for a year to be dedicated to turtles! How fitting for the Florida panhandle. Based on the publication Biology and Conservation of Florida Turtles (2006), there are 38 taxa of turtles in our state.
Couple of turtles we saw while enjoying the UWF nature trails.
