Saturday, September 4

Friday Night:

  • Team 9 had to bring in an Environmental Specialist to green Nest #72.  Aren’t they lucky to have Brittany on their team?  They did their best to preserve the Sea Oats and the dune structure while giving the turtles a path to the ocean.
  • Nest #59 started hatching at 10:55.  When Gail and Allen arrived, 50 hatchlings were already trotting to the water.  By 12:05, 90 hatchlings made it to the ocean.  There were 2 more stragglers for a total of 92.  Team 5 wishes to thank their Turtle Ambassadors from NY who helped tremendously!
  • Bugs were really bad out for all teams!

Saturday Morning:

  • Nest #59 had one more hatchling with the cutest little tracks!
  • Nests #58 and #67 had crab holes.
