Sea Turtle Season at Ft. Myers Beach

Image
It's Sea Turtle Season Each year, sea turtle season runs May 1 through October 31 at Fort Myers Beach.  We're fortunate that every year, more and more sea turtles nest right on our beautiful beach, near Mango Street Inn Bed & Breakfast. It is truly a  remarkable sight when you see them.  As with all of our beautiful island creatures, it's important to understand the rituals and challenges of the sea turtle in order to protect them and ensure the hatchlings survive.

Fortunately, the numbers are growing each year. In 2015, Fort Myers Beach had 73 nests total, but last year that number increased to 92. We hope to see even more of an increase this year. Some experts expect that 2017 may be a “generational year.”  Recently, the Island Sand (our local newspaper) interviewed Eve Haverfield. She is the founder of Turtle Time, Inc., the all-volunteer, non-profit group that monitors nesting of globally-endangered sea turtles on Big Hickory Island as well as Bonita, Bunche and F…

If you are a big bird watcher, then the best bed and breakfast in Fort Myers Beach, Mango Street Inn, is the place to be! There are many different types of beautiful birds that can be spotted on the shores around Fort Myers Beach. While there are several birds, we'd like to highlight some of our favorites. For any of you out there that aren't very familiar with bird terminology, when we refer to plumage, we are describing their feathers. Also, we are going to take a look at three different categories of birds that may be spotted around our great bed and breakfast in Fort Myers Beach, the shore birds, wading birds, and common birds.
Shore Birds
Sanderling
The Sanderling has short black legs that blur as they scurry across the beach. They are medium sized birds that are recognizable by their black legs and bills and obsessive wave chasing habits. These birds breed only on High Arctic tundra, but during the winter they live on most of the sandy beaches of the world, including Ft. …
