Middle: Tonight we did the inventory of Relocated DEB11 dated 6/2 located just north of Walkway #8. Bill educated the big crowd in 'all things turtle' while Walter dug out the chamber contents. Susan and Kathy C. pitched in sorting and counting the many white, hatched eggshells. Walter brought 2 live, frisky hatchlings out of the nest to the thrill of the crowd. As the 2 lines of people were formed, Suzette released the hatchlings. They paraded by the many who were snapping their photos and were all smiles. The tide was going out, the current was strong and the 2 turtles were swept into their new watery home. The success of this nest was a very good 93%...congratulations to Beth who earned her certification on this relocated nest!
