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

At 5 am a town public works employee notified the NEST hotline of a mother sea turtle nesting on the beach. Mom was just finishing and left before NEST volunteers arrived.

Jennifer C found the nest! Congratulations! it was her first. Just as Jennifer found the nest the hot line called out for more volunteers to go to a nest sight in Kill Devil Hills.

The data loggers were installed

The truly fabulous Team 7. Thanks to all for a great job.
