We walked all the way to the inlet and got a glimpse of a sea turtle returning after successfully laying a nest. We were excited to get to witness the whole process on our walk back. We got to witness a turtle laying and covering close to the white building where we started! The turtle wanted to ensure we got our daily steps in!
The windless night led to many bug bites but it was worth it to see this beautiful sight. By the time the turtle finished it was after midnight and was technically "World Turtle Day", how fitting! This turtle laid nest 156 on our state park beach. The following morning our intern, Cadey, and volunteer, Tori, found 9 new nests on the state park beach. See below for pictures of the nest. To adopt nest 156, click the button below to be taken to our adoption page. The Unique ID of this nest is: 251670
Part of the proceeds from the nest adoption goes back to our turtle program! We thank you for the support.
