We sell the "I survived" FRESPACE T-shirts because having to walk 3-miles at 10 o'clock at night can feel like quite the accomplishment! Well our night walk group got off easy last night with having to walk less than a tenth of a mile. There was a turtle laying eggs to the right of the white office building. She managed to climb the steep scarp and find a place to lay her eggs. This was our shortest night walk this season! Our first night walk had us on the beach until 1:30 a.m. but this walk ended before 11am.
See the pictures from the morning patrol below. Our morning patrol team managed to record our nest from our night walk before getting poured on. We are still waiting to get out on the beach and finish recording our crawls. Hopefully the rain/lightning can stop for a few hours so we can get everything recorded.
UPDATE: We are back from patrol and we found another 8 nests and 3 false crawls!
