Thursday Night:

Nest #66 hatched with 131 baby turtles heading straight for the ocean!

Friday Morning:

  • Nest #64 hatched overnight with LOTS of tracks in the runway!
  • Nest #62 had one more hatchling track in the runway.
  • Nest #66 had several more tracks in the runway.  That nest was relocated with 140 eggs.  131 + the several more = not many left to hatch, if any!!!
  • Green has been left up to the upper 70’s-early 80’s, just in case!
