WE’RE FEELING IT! Those Summer time feelings like finding sea turtle nests in the sand.
Nags Head ATV team member Tom Chisholm stated he would find a nest and delivered on that promise. Early this morning 2016 sea turtle nest #5 was found in Nags Head.
Another great turnout of NEST volunteers who worked as a team to locate the nest and find the magical DNA egg. Because mama Loggerhead laid her nest close to the dune, no thought had to be given for relocation.
There was also a large number of beach visitors who attended the event and former teacher Gail was at the ready to pass out N.E.S.T. brochures and answer any questions. The egg cavity was elusive but found and cameras were a flying when Lisa uncovered a white ping ball sized egg.
The response statistic sheet was completed and the nest made ready for safekeeping. Mama Logger may know just how many eggs are in the nest, but for the rest of us we will find out in about 60 day.
