I believe once laid it is about 60 days - but would need to confirm.

I don't understand your question.
when the clutch begins it seems to start all at once and continue for hours.
Hea did you know a 60 egg clutch can have as many as 20 different fathers?

Come on Elbert - You never dated me!
I understand, and love, the way turtles hatch.
What I am trying to understand is when the season is over - in other words - all the hatching is done.

I do not want to drive on the beach up north until I am sure I will not be destroying any nests.

And for you who want to jump on me for driving on the beach - from Del Norte north this is no other way until north of Tranquility Bay.

I don't think the time is distinct enough for you to drive on the beach up there and not be sure you weren't running over nests.

This message board is a source of information - sometimes even accurate. But to answer your question, you would be better off asking one of the locals that collect the eggs to eat.

The San Pedro Sun had a great article on the turtle nesting season in June.

Luckily not so many people eat the eggs anymore. An entire generation has grown up with turtle conservation. I know San Pedranos in their 20's who enjoyed turtle eggs as children. They considered the treasure similar to Christmas morning for it's goodness. As adults they enjoy the memories but won't eat the eggs anymore.

The real threat to turtle nests is sea walls, clearing of native beach plants for a mono culture of coconuts, motorized traffic on the beach (including resort ATV's to remove Sargasso) and building to close to the waters edge. The entire island of Ambergris Caye is a turtle nesting ground, not just up north. There is even a nest in Tres Cocos this year. She managed to find her way between a armored shore. Will her off springs be so lucky?

Turtle Nesting Season has begun
