We had a walk to the inlet under a starry sky with plenty of shooting stars! Unfortunately our wishes to see a nesting turtle did not come to fruition, as we returned back to the office without seeing a turtle. There were plenty of fun things to check out along the way including bioluminescence, ghost crabs, fossils and a black-tipped shark.
The next morning our dawn patrol team found 4 new nests and 3 false crawls! These turtles must have come ashore to nest within the hours of 12am and 6am as they evaded us on our walk. We are excited to be up to 164 nests now on our beach! Check out the pictures below taken from our patrol team.
