We had an exciting start to our night walk program on Thursday! One of the nests showed possible signs of emergence, so we brought the night walk group onto the beach as soon as they arrived. We did not have to wait too long and the sand started to "boil" with emerging hatchlings. They successfully made their way across the beach and into the ocean as we cheered them on.
After the hatchlings successfully made it into the water, we went back to the WIFI room for the presentation. Following the presentation, we proceeded to walk the beach in the hopes of seeing a nesting adult sea turtle. Unfortunately no other turtle activity was found but it was a beautiful walk under a bright moon!
The following morning our turtle patrol found that three nests showed signs of emergence and no adult tracks or nests were found!
