There were no new nests or false crawls during the week. Looks like the Loggerheads may be done for the year. If we end up with our current total of 68 nests, it will be our fourth best year ever.
During the week the Turtle Patrol inventoried 8 nests that had hatched. These nests resulted in over 685 hatchlings headed out to sea. In addition, the nests had a total of 55 live hatchlings to entertain the crowds that gathered to observe the inventories.
We still have 35 more nests to inventory so watch Tidelines for the time and place as they’re scheduled.
