Middle: Jane and Donna found a crawl south WW#4 up high on the beach and with lots of dark excavated sand. Bill went to work with them and they went through the procedure. Donna located the soft sand and she and Jane dug down to find the eggs…DEB12 go team!
Hobcaw: Brandie, walking alone today, had 2 U-turn false crawls and 2 natural nests! One nest was textbook and the other turtle plowed along the base of the dune for a distance. This did not bother Brandie as she easily located both!

Certification: Our first volunteer to earn his certification is Bob Baird! He joined us last season but with so few nests he did not get enough experience. This year he made certification a goal and walked different sections of the beach training with a variety of volunteers 3-5 days a week. Bob has had multiple nests (5 last week) and learned the many aspects of “doing turtles”. He is a retired family medicine physician who moved to DeBordieu in 2017 with his wife, Denise, from Lancaster, Pa. He enjoys woodworking, cooking, reading and biking. Bob’s medical skills will serve him well with his new patients…loggerheads! We are so proud of you, Bob:)
