Hurricane Idalia hit the Florida Gulf coast and then swung across and impacted Edisto. We did experience high tides as it moved over during a high tide. The tide was even higher due to the Supermoon King Tides. We did lose some nests from the impact, however, majority of our nests have already come and gone.
I created a video to share what the impact may be on sea turtles from an extreme weather event like a hurricane. Check it out below!
