SEPTEMBER 1! Unbelievable!

Nest #30 had 2 hatchlings this morning.

It is a holiday weekend and our nests are near the public parking area, so we could have crowds. I know you all already do but remember that our job is to protect the hatchlings and see them safely to the water. Educate our visitors about being good stewards of our beach and water as well as all the things we know about our sea turtles.

Nest #27 had a couple more hatchlings during the night.

Nest #23 Inventory and mystery solved (maybe): 56 shells, 5 unhatched, and 1 live hatchlings. So the number was 61 and not 51. Gary’s theory is that it was an input error and we know who does the emails and computer stuff. My theory is fifty-one and sixty-one sound alike and even more alike on a windy beach, AND we know who can’t hear well.
