We are now up to 24 nests and 14 false crawls at Edisto Beach State Park and 237 nests in the entire state of South Carolina. The turtle activity has really picked up the last couple of days with 6 nests and 1 false crawl documented yesterday and 4 nests and 2 false crawls today. The busiest nesting month is June so we should be seeing more and more activity in the days to come.
Every morning we are out on the beach, documenting the new sea turtle activity. If you see us out on the beach at sunrise, be sure to say hi! We love talking with and educating our beach goers on all we do to help protect the sea turtles.
I created a video on the first nest found this season, check it out below!
