Last night was another sand blowing, busy night and we had 1 new nest this morning!

Nest #8 was Inventoried with excited visiting families attending!

  • Live Hatchlings-1
  • Dead Hatchlings-0
  • Unhatched Eggs-13
  • Pipped Eggs-1
  • Hatched Egg Shells-106

Nest #24 had a sweet lone hatchling appear a little before 8pm.  More than a dozen beach visitors got to see his walk of fame!  This morning there were 3 more hatchling tracks in the runway!

Nests #16 and #18 had turtles emerge.  Thanks to the Adams family for their help with #18!  Nest #18 also had a few more tracks this morning.

Nests #15 and #89 (relocated from Southport after excavation on Pebble Beach) each had 1 hatchling track in the runway.

Nest #92 was laid in some nice soft and dry sand!  It was a pretty crawl!
