South Carolina has 7 nests (likely a few more not yet reported). Both South and North Islands to the south of Hobcaw Beach each have nests. This means the turtles are working their way north as the ocean temperatures rise. Volunteers began sunrise surveys on May 1 looking for the tracks that indicate nesting activity. It will happen shortly!
