Dennis and Jerry begin completing the datasheet.

Three days in a row and another nest is found in Kitty Hawk!  As the team takes measurements of the crawl, they notice a drag mark down the center.  It looks like it might be another turtle with a barnacle on her plastron (or the same turtle we’ve been seeing through the summer??) .

This crawl shows a barnacle drag.

Nesting responders dig under the pile of sand on the incoming tracks to find the egg chamber.

Nesting responders work together to confirm eggs and to collect a DNA sample.  The DNA will help us to know how many nests this turtle has laid this season.
