Busy Volunteers and Surveyors!

Our surveyors and nesting volunteers have been busy! We have marked 12 nests for protection and recorded 12 false crawls. Our surveyors check the beach each morning looking for turtle crawls. When a nest is found, data is collected and our volunteers mark it off for protection. Average incubation on our beaches is 2 months at which time we monitor for hatching activity. Reminder, if you see a sea turtle on the beach at night keep your distance, do not use any light, and contact local police so our volunteers can respond.
