We walked to the inlet under an almost full moon! There was a breeze keeping the bugs at bay and we had turtle tracks to see. We came across a couple new nests and false crawls but no turtle until our trek on the way back. We saw this turtle make her slow crawl back to the ocean after crawling ashore without nesting. She was missing part of her back flipper, so I am sure she will have a tough time trying to dig an egg chamber. However, these turtles are pretty tough so I am sure she will find a way!
The next morning our intern, Chloe, and our volunteers, Bill & Iddy, found 6 new nests and 9 false crawls. The new nests are 182, 183, 184, 185, 186 & 187. See below for a few pictures from the morning patrol. If you would like to adopt one of these nests, click the button below to be taken to our adoption page. The Unique ID's for the nests are: 252043, 252045, 252061, 252062, 252063 & 252067.
Part of the proceeds from the nest adoption goes back to our turtle program! The turtles thank you for the support!
