Whew…what a morning for today’s volunteers! Each section had activity and working on the crawls was tough in the wind and rain but all persevered:)
North: Judy K. and Marie texted before 6:00 that they had a possible nest just south #13mm at Prince George. Marie got some good instruction from Judy and experience locating DEB10! We are proud of you, Marie!
DEB10 71 yds. south #13mm
Middle: Jane had a total of 3 crawls between WW#6 and #8 likely by the same turtle. Two crawls were side by side and Jane found the egg chamber in the northern one. It had been several years since she had relocated a nest and this one over the low sea wall in a scarped dune. Betsy went for support and Jane did all the work….and did it well!
DEB11 Relocated to 63 yds. north WW#6 101 eggs
DEBFC03 75 yds. south WW#6 DEBFC04 35yds. south WW#8
Hobcaw: Brandie and Ryan also had a full morning with 2 false crawls and a nest all close together and likely by the same indecisive turtle. Way to go Team!
