What a great night walk! We first saw a couple hatchlings making it to the ocean and then we saw a loggerhead turtle nesting! The two hatchlings were from nest 12. The nest had hatched the night before but a couple hatchlings didn't make it out with everyone else and instead left the night after. I spotted the first hatchling with fire ants on it's head. We brushed off the ants and the hatchling made it out of the chamber along with another one.
We walked all the way to the inlet and then on our way back we saw the loggerhead turtle nesting. We waited as she dug her egg chamber and then got to witness the eggs falling as she laid her eggs. The nest we saw is number 217 on our beach! The ID # to adopt the nest is: 159129
We had to relocate this nest in the morning, there were 113 eggs in the nest. See below for pictures!
