We had a long walk to the inlet under a beautiful starry sky. I checked the possible nests for hatching with no luck of seeing any little ones. On the way back, we were nearing the white office building when I got a red flashing signal. Campers were on the beach and spotted a nesting turtle. They kept a great distance of 30 feet. I checked on her and she had started to lay already so the night walk group was able to watch her lay her eggs and then cover and return.
The next morning, our patrol marked the nest as 293 on our state park beach. If you would like to adopt this nest, click on the button below. The unique ID to adopt the nest is: 262493. Part of the proceeds from the nest adoption goes back towards our turtle program.
The turtles and our patrol team thank you for the support!
