We’ve Got a Late Nesters on Our Hands!

Volunteers dig to find the egg chamber and are getting ready to remove 20 eggs in order to place the data logger in the middle of the egg chamber.

 

It was a beautiful Sunday morning for our nesting response team to respond to yet another sea turtle nest, dare we say it is the last of the season?! We will have to see but for now our team did a great job finding the egg chamber and placing a data logger into the middle of the egg chamber. Luckily momma sea turtle laid her nest in a safe spot so the nest was covered back up and marked off. This response had some special guest appearances by not only Frizzle but Benji too, and NEST volunteers love to see them out on a nest when our fearless leader KC can bring them along. See you hatchlings in October!
