Nests on our 5+ miles of beach are beginning to hatch and inventories are being conducted. Due to the pandemic, public inventories are prohibited by the SC Department of Natural Resources. As hatching season commences, please remember LIGHTS OUT FOR LOGGERHEADS!

HOB01 was inventoried and 3 live hatchlings were found still in the nest chamber. The volunteer put them on the beach to crawl to the ocean. There were several beach walkers with unleashed dogs. Please, if you are walking with your dog, watch from a distance and keep your dog restrained.

3 hatchlings make their way to the ocean from the inventory of HOB01
Hatchlings instinctively know to go to the ocean.
Almost “home”!
