NEST INVENTORY: We will have our first public inventory* tonight at 6:00 p.m. The nest, DEB03, is located 50 yds. south #9mm on the North end toward Prince George. Please use the Beach Club walkway and walk north for 1/2 mile to the nest. We will begin promptly at 6:00 so allow about 15 minutes to walk.
*SCDNR wants to know the hatch success of each nest in SC. Volunteers must wait 3 nights after a nest hatches to dig out the contents, count eggshells, unhatched eggs and any dead hatchlings in the nest. On occasion, live hatchlings are found still in the nest that did not hatch out on their own. They are put in a bucket, shown to onlookers and then released to crawl on their own to the ocean. After the inventory, volunteers will calculate a hatch success.
