Middle: Tonight we did the inventory of Natural DEB25 dated 6/29 located between Walkways #5 and #6. Kathi A. gave a very animated turtle talk and called on the Sibley sisters (Frances and Clara) to recount their experience of watching this nest hatch Saturday night! John did his first digging of the nest contents under the guidance of Beth. Carolyn and Jane counted/sorted eggshells and unhatched eggs. 2 live hatchlings were found in the nest which was very exciting for the crowd of about 40. The hatchlings were put on the beach to crawl to the ocean. With some assistance, they finally made it into their new watery home and are off to the Gulf Stream! This was a big nest of 143 eggs and the success was 76%.

Middle: Tonight, we did the post-eclipse inventory of Natural DEB24 dated 6/27 located just north of Walkway #7. As expected, there was a large crowd of 80+ hoping to cap off their awesome day by seeing some turtle hatchlings. As Beth dug out the nest contents, kathy C. delivered the turtle talk. Carolyn and Martha sorted and counted egg shells and unhatched eggs. There were no live hatchlings remaining in the nest but all that could get out did so on their own. The success was a very good 91% which is something to celebrate! All were encouraged to attend the next inventory Wed. just north of Walkway #6 at 6:00 p.m.
