May 1, 2023 – It’s Turtle Season!

Happy First Day of Sea Turtle Nesting Season! 

No tracks or nests today, but it is early and was a bit chilly this morning!  Sadly our patrol did find a deceased juvenile Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle that had been the victim of a boat strike.  Please call us if you see a mama, hatchling or stranded turtle or if you accidentally hook a turtle while fishing!
