Special thanks to Turtle Ambassadors Ben and Jamee for rescuing a turtle hatchling from Kingsley Street Park in Southport Friday evening! Poor baby was very lost, walking circles around a park street light! How in the world did it get there? Possibly dropped by a bird? We may never know! He was very spunky and didn’t appear to have any injuries and was taken to the beach to be released. Thanks also to Team 2 for helping with his release!
Nest #82 had another hatchling emerge this morning. Morning Patrol arrived just in time to see him make it to the water! Looks like he took a long journey with a few twists and turns down the runway.
No other activity to report, but look at that beautiful sunrise!
