This nest was spotted and called into the hotline by the grandmother of this wonderful “turtle baby.” Note the turtle on the jumper! They brought turtle luck all the way from Buffalo to KDH!
Nest 30 was the perfect nest. It was laid just just out of the beach nourishment area in a perfect spot so avoided relocation.
. Mother turtle got down to business and did not wander as she left the beach so “reading” the nest and finding eggs was straight forward.
Once all the measurements are taken, the nest is marked off, the DNA sample is labeled, and the paper work is completed, the amazing response team poises for the team picture!
