9-10 Charlotte dug out the nest contents for Paula and Beth to sort/count.
9-10 One healthy, active hatchling remained in the nest and made a beeline to the ocean!

Middle: SCDNR’s Charlotte Hope came to our DEB15 inventory tonight at Walkway#7 attended by a few volunteer and other enthusiasts. She made short order of digging out the nest with the assistance of Beth and Paula. With one live, frisky hatchling to release, the nest had a 76% success.

This was our final inventory of the season. There are only 4 nests remaining to hatch but SCDNR asked that we remove all supplies off nests ahead of H. Florence. We sure don’t want our supplies being swept out into the ocean and become part of the Atlantic garbage patch!
