Tuesday Turtle Trivia 2020

During COVID-19 in 2020 the restrictions on large group gatherings caused the cancellation of the traditional Turtle Talk educational programs.
As a virtual alternative, the Town of Holden Beach asked a Tuesday Turtle Trivia Question each week on their Facebook page. This was then answered by the Turtle Patrol.
See how much you know about the turtles that nest on our beach? All of these photos were from the 2020 season.
