Turtle Population


Turtle Habitat

The City of Deerfield Beach is very aware of the threat to the Sea Turtle population and their inclusion on the endangered species list. For this reason, a close working relationship has been established with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. A volunteer is dispatched each morning to locate any new nest. Once discovered, the nest is appropriately marked and signs are posted to make the general public aware that disturbing it will result in a substantial fine.
