The Sea Turtle Hatchlings have a long swim ahead

After making their mad dash to the ocean, the hatchlings will now swim straight out from Hilton Head Island to the deep ocean, where they will join other loggerhead turtles following the Gulf Stream north from South Carolina, across the Atlantic Ocean, down along the coast of Africa and then circle back to our area.  That is built-in GPS!!!  After twenty five years or so, the females who hatched on Hilton Head Island beaches, will return here to lay their eggs – what awesome creatures!
