We are excited to share that the Edisto Beach State Park has found the first nest of the season on our 1.5 mile beach. The nest was found on May 10th by our volunteer, Krystal and her daughter! They were very excited to celebrate Mother's Day with a nest! They also recorded two false crawls found as well. See below for pictures from the first nest. The first nest in South Carolina was found on Lighthouse Island on May 1st. So we knew that we would get our first nest any day.
Here is to the start of the sea turtle nesting season! Stay tuned for more turtle updates!
