This turtle crawled over a 1 ft high escarpment and nested far enough from the water that volunteers did not have to move the eggs.  Unfortunately, high surf from Tropical Storm Alberto washed this nest away on June 12.

Our first nest after Alberto swept through the gulf.  This nest was unusual in that the hatchlings emerged during the day, and all of the eggs hatched, 100% success!

We thought the turtle nested, but volunteers were unable to find the eggs, and no hatchlings emerged after 70 days of incubation.

39 of the 85 hatchlings that emerged from this nest were disoriented by lights from Schooners and condos to the east of the bar. Volunteers Lydia and Caroline were on hand to rescue the hatchlings.

Condo residents saw the turtle on the beach at 10 pm. Volunteers arrived just after the turtle returned to the water, so we didn't get to tag her. Some residents also got to watch hatchlings emerge from this nest on October 3 and make their way to the water under a moonlit sky.
