Tuesday, July 12th

This morning our Duck ATV rider called in and announced he had not just a crawl, but a turtle!  She was still covering her nest site when he came across her crawl on the beach.

(Photos to come when things calm down.)

The day wasn’t over for our nesting responders though.  That afternoon, ocean rescue called and reported a turtle hauling out. We thought, “it must be a Kemp’s Ridley!” and crossed our fingers. Sure enough, it not only was a Kemp’s but it was our same Kemp’s from earlier this season.
