The weather is warming up, cannonball jellyfish are washing in and the first few migrating leatherbacks have been spotted! Spring is here and the nesting sea turtles will be here before we know it. In the meantime, there is a lot of work to be done with organizing and preparing supplies, getting ready for the upcoming Turtle Fest event, volunteer meetings, installing shorebird and seabird fencing, and the list goes on.
We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces when we are out on turtle patrol! Be sure to say hi if you see us out working in the turtle cart.
Here is to a busy, fun and successful 2023 sea turtle nesting season!
