5-19 The sun rises on the first nest at DeBordieu located between #9 and #10 mile markers. Congratulations to Beth for locating it!
5-19 An egg is taken from each nest laid in SC as part of a 3 state (GA, SC, NC) ongoing DNA study. This gives genetic information about the frequency of a turtle’s nesting, the location of her nests and if she has daughters and granddaughters…very interesting!
