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

After this tricky green turtle laid her nest up in the dunes and another rain storm hit the area things were hard to read. Nonetheless the response team was not about to be outsmarted by a sea turtle! And fortunately they were NOT.

Contemplating the nesting site

The nest was found at the yellow arrow. Not the typical spot but mother turtle apparently slid a bit in the dune after laying her eggs

The hard working team 34. Thanks to all !!!!!!!
