We had a short but sweet walk to a turtle that was emerging at very low tide. We waited patiently for her to crawl above the high tide line. Our intern, Cadey and myself checked on her periodically to see when she started to lay her eggs. Once she started laying, our group was able to get a closer look and watch her lay, cover and return. She had damage to the back of her shell, which gave us a closer look at the eggs dropping into the egg chamber, it was such an amazing sight!
The next morning, our intern Chloe, and volunteer, Nona, located the eggs and marked this nest as 315 on our state park beach. If you would like to adopt this nest, click on the button below. The unique ID of nest 315 is: 264304. Part of the proceeds from the nest adoption goes back towards our turtle patrol!
