Night Walk - June 14th
We were happy to have another successful night walk! We witnessed a loggerhead sea turtle finish laying her eggs and then head back into the water. It took her a while as it was fairly low tide. She was tired but she made it! The nest we saw on the night walk was 106 on our beach!
The following morning I was on patrol with Krystal. She was the sea turtle specialist at the state park when I was an intern here. We had the busiest morning yet with 8 nests and 5 false crawls. We relocated two of the nests as well. See below for a few photos from the morning patrol.

Hi Leah, l am still thinking about the magical night of walking with your crew and the chance to enjoy and learn more about these magestic beings. Thanks again for a great night and all of ya'lls hard work! I tried to adopt nest #106 but I quests it was already taken because I did not see the code # you said to enter (let me know if I am mistaken!). ps Don't forget to look up the show "Sea Rescue" I could see you right at home on that show! All the best to you and the beautiful sea creatures you serve.

Hi Debbie, I am so glad that you enjoyed your time on our night walk. I just had a look and nest 106 (ID# 146367) can still be adopted, I believe more than one person can adopt the same nest. An easier way to find it is to scroll down to June 15th. Thanks again for joining us on the night walk!

Thanks Leah - I found the nest (106) and adopted for my sister Gwen's birthday, who signed us up for the walk! Happy travels!
