We had a great turn out for our public sea turtle nest inventory on Friday! There were two nests that we inventoried. The first nest didn't have the best success and there were no hatchlings found. In the second nest, the success rate was much higher and there was one little hatchling near the bottom of the nest. We got to cheer the hatchling on as it went into the ocean.
After the nest inventory I received lots of shells! Here's a photo of me and Adelyn and the shells she gave me. I am planning on making a homemade wind chime with all the shells I receive this season!
