First nest of the season!

posted: May 20, 2015, 12:30 PM

We knew it would be soon! Our morning rider found our first nest of the season today. The flipper length was 41" (that's a big turtle!). The team found and moved 139 eggs. This is right on "schedule" for Holden Beach. The last two years our first nest was on May 20th. (That is pure coincidence ---- or perhaps "turtle magic" -- -that it's been the same date for 3 years in a row.) The season has begun!
