No new nests or false crawls. 

Nest #22 had several more hatchlings last night.

Nest #25 hatched with a perfect boil of a 100-102 hatchlings!

OKI excavated their Leatherback nest this morning.  They had a crowd of over 200.

Sadly, none of the eggs hatched.  Laid to early in season?  Not fertilized?  Young mama,?  We will wait to hear what the state has to say.  Unfortunately, the same could happen to ours.

Susan got some pictures!

Just got word that Nest #26 also hatched last night!
