Wow, what a night walk! We were able to witness nest #3 "boil" with many hatchlings emerging to make their way to the ocean. Unfortunately some of the hatchlings started to disorient but myself and our volunteers were able to redirect them.
Then after a little bit of a walk down the beach I came across a sea turtle emerging from the ocean. We waited patiently as she took her time digging her egg chamber but the wait was worth it! We got to see her lay her eggs, cover the chamber and then crawl back to the ocean. The nesting turtle we saw during our night walk marks nest #90 on our beach! We found 6 new nests in the morning, bringing our total to 93! If you would like to adopt the nest we saw last night, click on the button below to be taken to the adoption page. The Unique ID for nest #90 is: 231343. Part of the proceeds from the adoption goes back to our EBSP turtle patrol program. See below for pictures from the morning patrol!
