2 new nests today both relocated to east of the Baptist walkover.

Nest #3 had a 27” crawl and we moved 150 eggs. Nest #4 had a 36” crawl and only 60 eggs. Yes, sounded backwards to me too.

Re-nourishment project: Sand placement is scheduled to begin today at the most eastern end of Caswell Beach.

Tuesday, May 1

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.
