We had another successful night walk! We walked only 0.3 of a mile down the beach before we saw an emerging turtle. Some beach walkers came across her and kept a good distance to ensure she continued her crawl. We watched the dark spot on the beach crawl up to the tide line and waited patiently as she started to dig. Once she started to lay we got to get a closer look.
The following morning our turtle patrol had to move the nest because it was below the Spring high tide line. She laid 122 eggs and they were moved to a higher and safer location. The nest is marked as 97 on our beach!
We found a total of 6 nests and 5 false crawls today! Bringing our total nest count to 102.
