On July 4th, I was on morning patrol with our volunteers, Sherry and Kelly. Before we got to the half mile marker on our beach, we already had used up all the nesting supplies I had gotten ready! So it was back to the shed to pick up more. I gathered 5 more nesting supplies in the hope to have 8 nests. We ended up having to use all the nesting supplies as we had a busy morning with 8 nests and 2 false crawls. It seems like the turtles were celebrating the 4th as well!
That brought our total up to 121 nests and 102 false crawls. See below for some pictures taken by Kelly. I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July!
