We will do the nest inventory of DEB04 dated 5/31 between Walkway #4 and Walkway #5 at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday. DeBordieu & Hobcaw SCUTE volunteers, under the direction of the SC Dept. of Natural Resources, will dig up the contents of the nest that hatched over the weekend. Sometimes live hatchlings are found that could not exit the nest on their own. The turtles are released onto the beach to crawl to the ocean.

8-1-21 Faint hatchling tracks can be seen among all the footprints. This lets the volunteers know turtles have exited the nest. There is a 3 night wait to allow all hatchlings that are able to climb out of the nest and make their way to the ocean.
