The Arch­e­lon so­ci­ety for the pro­tec­tion of the en­gen­dered log­ger­head tur­tle said yes­ter­day that the hatch­ing sea­son has started and ad­vised beach­go­ers to ex­er­cise cau­tion when vis­it­ing nest­ing sites. Arch­e­lon said that the first traces of newly hatched Caretta-caretta tur­tles were spot­ted by vol­un­teers on Sekani beach on the Io­nian is­land of Zakyn­thos on July 21, mark­ing the start of the sea­son. The same nest con­tin­ued to pro­duce baby tur­tles over the next few days, the or­ga­ni­za­tion said. The or­ga­ni­za­tion ad­vised beach­go­ers not to in­ter­fere with the hatch­lings when they emerge from the nests.
