Unfortunately a lightning storm made us cancel the walk for July 8th. We still had the presentation but when we were ready to walk the storm was too close. The beach is a dangerous place to be during a lightning storm.
It was very disappointing but we cannot control the weather and it is best to respect it when it is that threatening! We had a severe thunderstorm warning and the town beach put out a warning to the residents.
The following morning I was on patrol with out volunteers, Ashby and Ray. We found two sea turtle nests (131 & 132), one which needed to be relocated. We also had one false crawl. If you would like to adopt one of the nests from that night you can click the button below to be taken to the adoption page. The unique ID's for the nests are: 205890 & 205897
Although it was a slow morning for nesting it was a busy morning for trash! We picked up over 12.5 lbs of trash ranging from plastic bottles to diapers! Please pick-up after yourself at the beach or if you see trash take it with you and dispose of it properly. Check out some of the photographs from the morning patrol:
