Wednesday Night:

  • We have a sad inventory to report.  Nest #76 was heavily over washed in the storm tides last week.  They saw 1 hatchling emerge on Saturday night.  Sadly, that was the only living hatchling.  Our team did everything they could to protect the nest and tried to remove the added sand that was washed in and over.  The power of the water was too strong.  Thanks, Team 4 for all of your hard work!
    • Live Hatchlings-0 at Inventory
    • Dead Hatchlings-45
    • Pipped Eggs-28
    • Unhatched Eggs+37
    • Hatched Egg Shells-45 
  • Did you see the SpaceX rocket launch?

Thursday Morning:

Nests #71 & #74 had crab holes. No other nest activity overnight.
