After volunteers were rained out this morning on Hobcaw Beach, the late afternoon inventory of HOB15 was conducted just south #0mm & Ocean Green. The nest had 16 hatchlings inside that had not emerged on their own. Several had just hatched out of their shells. The volunteer put them on the beach to crawl to the ocean. The nest had an impressive 93% hatch success rate…Yay!! Watch video:
