Network for Endangered Sea Turtles 24 HR. HOTLINE 252-441-8622

Saturday night almost before the sun was even down, Nest #05 boiled with 59 turtles.  You may be asking, “Did I miss nests 3 and 4?”  The answer is no.  Jonny and Barbra just like to get things done quickly I guess.  The sink hole showed up on their Nest at Day 55 and most the turtles rolled out on Day 56.  The average incubation time for the state has been 61.2 Days and for the Pea Island, our nearest neighbor this far north, the incubation time has averaged 63 Days.  So, for our sitters on Nests 03 and 04, don’t worry… you’re doing great.  They will come soon enough!
