Turtle traffic ran us down! Trying to catch-up here with June to mid-July photos and stories.
Nest 23 and 24
Great team effort coordinated by Sharon. Thanks for letting us join in!
Sharon, Cindy, Linda and Nancy put these TWO new side-by-side nests into new locations to protect them from high tides.
Linda G’s first clutch find! Super job probing, finding, and bucketing 124 eggs for relocation.
This nest was laid amongst a long line of black sand and wrack that had accumulated at the base of a badly eroded dune.
It was a difficult chamber to find, but it didn’t deter Linda’s determination. Excellent find!
Good news! No relocation necessary!
Momma Turtle found a wonderful site and laid a she’ll-tell-us-later number of eggs.
Thank you to the wonderful Thomas Family from Social Circle, GA for all their work and support in devotion to Folly Beach and its sea turtles.
Other stories and photos of the 2012 season have been posted under “Recent News”. Thanks for your extra patience this season!
