WE HAVE NEST #1. She had a 37” crawl at the east end by the GPS tower. We relocated 120 eggs away from the high tide line but still at the very eastern end.
Also, wanted to let you know that our rescue, Dutchman, is doing great still. She is eating and improving daily.
It’s here! May 1st is the official beginning of turtle season 2018. We are beginning morning patrols but will only be reporting on the days that have news.
Be prepared for a “different” season this year. Our beach will be undergoing beach re-nourishment starting about May 27th. All nests will be relocated to the area east of the Baptist gate until the replenished area is clear of machinery/traffic. They are anticipating being finished with our beach by the end of June and moving on to Oak Island.
Even with all the commotion, we still have great expectations for another wonderful turtle season.
