We are fortunate to have Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park.

It’s home to numerous species of native and naturalized wildlife.
We have several distinct populations of critters coexisting and acting out the Circle of Life with Hanna Park as their home, (in our own oceanfront backyard). This naturalized Circle of Life also pertains to our beaches, note the size of the dunes in this video. Today they are nearly flat. These clips were taken in 2010, before Hurricane’s Sandy, Matthew, and others leveled them from 12′ high to the flat beaches we have today.

The Fox & the Turtle/Survival of the Species

In this video the Fox raids the Turtle’s Nest. While this feeding occurrence is natural, humans disturbing a Turtle’s Nest is not. Please remember these ways to protect nesting sea turtles and their hatchlings:

  • Remain at a distance from nesting sea turtles and hatchlings.
  • Remove chairs, canopies, boats and other items from the beach at night, because they block the movement of turtles and hatchings.
  • Turn off or shield lights along the beach, in order to prevent hatchlings from getting confused and going toward lights on land instead of the salt water, where they belong.
  • Use red LED flashlights on the beach at night, adjust cell phone screens to dark mode and don’t take flash photos.
  • Fill in holes that people dug in the sand during the day, so nesting sea turtles and hatchlings don’t fall in and get stuck there at night.
  • Correctly dispose of fishing line, so it won’t entangle sea turtles and other animals.
  • Remember it is illegal to harm, harass or take sea turtles, their eggs and hatchlings, including getting too close to a nesting female.
  • Report sick, injured, entangled or dead sea turtles to the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline, 1-888-404-3922 (FWCC).
