I am very excited to announce that we have had our first sea turtle nest on our Edisto Beach State Park! I was on patrol with one of our volunteers, Nona, and we found the nest not too far down the beach. The nest was situated near the beach campground area. The sea turtle made a long crawl across the renourished sand and found the perfect spot near the dunes. She must have been one tired turtle after that long crawl.
See below for photographs taken by Libby Gordon, who was so happy to be able to see a nest and tracks for the first time! Thanks again Libby for being our photographer.
