Busy Night on the Beach

posted: July 28, 2018, 12:19 PM

There was quite a bit of action on the beach Friday night! Nest 3 was closed and inventoried with 2 hatchlings being released to the ocean. Nest 4 boiled on day 57 with 64 hatchlings and nest 6 boiled on day 54 with 61 hatchlings heading to the ocean. Nests 5, 7 and 8 are "collared" with the adoption teams ready and waiting for hatching at those nests. Although there hasn't been a new nest since Sunday, it's still possible that the mother turtles will return and lay a few more nests on Holden Beach.

The last Children's Turtle Time of the season is Wednesday, August 1 at 4pm at the Town Hall but there are still 5 Turtle Talks remaining at 7pm on each Wednesday in August.
