North: Pat found a crawl in Ocean Park leading up to the boardwalk with a tent frame, piled up chairs and other debris. It was unclear if this was a tidy turtle or a turnaround. Pat met up with Buffie and Mark and they returned to work on the crawl. In the meantime, vacationers had moved their stuff and completely erased the crawl evidence:( Pat sent Buffie and Mark to work with Bob B. on his nest relocation and while referring to the original photos, probed the area. BINGO, Pat found the nest of a very tidy, determined turtle…DEB38! So glad you are home, Pat!

Middle: Newly certified Bob B. got to try out his talent today on a crawl south WW#7. He quickly located the egg chamber and went into relocation mode. Buffie and Mark arrived to get some relocation experience. They worked with Bob moving the eggs to north WW#6…really nice teamwork!
DEB39 relocated 78 eggs (+1 for DNA) to north WW#6
Hobcaw: Martha and Donna had 2 crawls early into their walk with high nest potential. Martha said Donna did really well locating both chambers and has a good understanding of the process:)
