In past few days, mother turtles are picking up their pace and making up for a very slow start to the 2023 season! Nest 18 loggerhead came in and got down to business in a good spot.  Cathy and Kyle D led the team and Joe found the eggs on the first try.

Bobby M found his first nest of the year. Congratulations Bob!
