See pics of the damage on Jupiter Beach and hear what the folks at the Loggerhead MarineLife Center have to say.
Isaac's passing bands last week did more than flood our neighborhoods. They took a toll on our sea turtle nests, but not nearly all of them.
We spoke with Tom Longo, marketing manager at the Loggerhead MarineLife Center. He says the beach erosion was particularly bad in Jupiter and Juno Beach, and it destroyed anywhere from 40,000 to 50,000 sea turtle eggs.
Longo says we lost 500 nests on those two beaches, but once the storm had passed there were still 2,300 nests in place.
He tells us that far more eggs were destroyed during last year's erosion.
Longo says we are "experiencing record nesting numbers this year, so our nests are a lot higher this year than we've had in the past, almost 20 years".
Our cameras snapped photos of some of the erosion and damaged sea turtle nests on the beach at Jupiter's Carlin Park. Click here for the photo gallery.
