Last turtle egg hatching of the season
ViaNica.com | Mar 3, 2006
La Flor is Nicaragua's most important nesting site for Olive Ridley turtles, and the nesting season runs from July until January. The last nesting took place in January, and these eggs will be the last ones to hatch en masse in the 2005-2006 turtle season.
The next massive turtle arrivals (arribada) will take place around July of this year. Throughout the year, individual turtles will also visit the beach to lay their eggs, but it will be a while before the spectacular arribadas will take place again.
