In the 21 year history of the Holden Beach Turtle Patrol we had a Leatherback Turtle come on our beach and lay a nest! She was over 6 feet from flipper to flipper and estimated to be over 900 pounds! She layed 70 eggs with about 30 decoy eggs which is normal for this species. What a rare and wonderful happening!
