First thanks to the wonderful town of Nags Head maintenance staff! Not only do they do their very best to keep our beaches clean by picking up tons of trash but as they ride down the beach they alert us to turtle nests! Wow! They are always helpful but especially this time of year as our ATV patrols stop on August 31. Thank you!!!!
The nest that maintenance staff called-in this morning was a green and we think it may be the same turtle that laid nest 29 about two weeks ago. During years where mother turtles lay nests they typically lay multiple nests about two weeks apart.
This nest was a tough one as the incoming crawl was obscured by tire tracks and footprints. Our able team found the eggs after a few holes.
- nest number: 31
- town: Nags Head
- date eggs laid: 09/17/2021
See all active nests
