May sea turtle season update

Hatchlings are starting to emerge! This season’s first sea turtle hatchlings made their way from the nest to the Atlantic Ocean on May 22.

These baby Green sea turtles were from one of three nests from the same Green sea turtle (we named Brittany). Her second nest hatched later in the month and 95 Green sea turtles made their way out to sea. We expect her third nest to hatch any day now.

Also in May, we welcomed more sea turtles to shore to nest. There have now been a total of 19 confirmed nests, 15 Leatherback nests and 4 Green turtle nests. We expect some of our first Leatherback nests to begin to hatch soon as well.

Sea turtle nesting and hatching at Rosalie Bay Resort is quite an exciting sight to see! If you’re visiting us in the next few months, sign up for a “wake up call” at the Front Desk to make sure you don’t miss it.
