PASS CHRISTIAN, Miss. (WCBI) - For the first time in 20 years sea turtles are nesting on Mississippi mainland beaches.

According to the Associated Press, scientists are keeping a close eye on nests to see if any hatchlings emerge.

The endangered sea turtles have been spotted on Dear Island and Cat Island beaches.
