We're still watching the last nest on Holden Beach. Nest #71 closed yesterday with 8 hatchlings out of 46 eggs. Four babies made their way to the ocean. The other four are currently patients at the Karen Beasley Turtle Hospital in Topsail, NC. They are HB 1, HB 2, HB 3 and HB 4. It's reported that a couple of them are eating and waiting for a boat ride to the Gulf Stream. Thanks to the folks at the turtle hospital for all they do! This photo was taken from the Turtle Hospital's Facebook page....they have lots of hatchlings right now due to the recent cold spell.
