Officially, protection of nesting sea turtles continues on the east coasts of the island thru mid-October, but monitoring for nests continues until the end of the month. The eggs are collected and taken to the incubation pen at the Tortugranja. Releases of the hatchlings are done by personnel with the facility at sunrise or sunset when there is less heat and fewer predators. Three species nest on the island, with the most nests being from Green turtles, second are the Loggerhead, and third are the Hawksbill.They are expecting there will be a total of 1500 nests by the end of the month, which will be a new record.
