History of the 2023 HBTP Shirt

Our Journey Begins....on August 9, 2022, 100 loggerhead hatchlings emerged in a “boil” from the sand on Holden Beach and began their journey to the sea. This year’s shirt celebrates the hatchlings from this nest, along with the thousands of others who chose to begin their journey on Holden Beach.
Natural lighting was optimum during this late evening boil to carefully capture these photos without flash or artificial light.
Local artist and Holden Beach Turtle Watch Program advocate, Lisa Hildebrand, created an image to capture the hatchlings as they begin their journey. We are pleased to showcase her art on the 2023 HBTWP shirt.

You can purchase your 2023 HBTPW "Our Journey Begins" T-Shirt at The Lighthouse Gift Store (on the Causeway), by mail from our website or at a Turtle Time or Turtle Talk event. These shirts will only be available in 2023…when they’re gone…they’re gone.
