Rum Jetty is a Known Turtle Breeding Ground

The private beach at Rum Jetty, Silver Sands Jamaica, is a known breeding ground for the endangered green sea turtle, which lives to 100 years old, can grow up to 500 lbs and returns to its own birth place for breeding. Egg laying is in mid-October and hatching in late December or early January, tending around the time of a full moon. A truly magical experience to watch.
