Our final nest of the season, nest 181, which was laid August 3rd, emerged on September 21st. We conducted an inventory on the nest three days later to determine the hatch success. We found one live hatchling below that did not make it out with the others that we then got to release!
We are thankful to be able to protect our nesting sea turtles! More than 11,000 hatchlings emerged and made their way to the ocean this season. Good luck little ones!
