Sea Turtles and Hilton Head Island!

Hi, Sea Turtle Friends,

No wonder sea turtles love to nest on Hilton Head Island!  We were just was voted the Number One Island in the Continental United States by Travel and Leisure MagazineHere is the link:

https://www.travelandleisure.com/worlds-best/hilton-head-best-island-in-us   We were even mentioned on the Today Show!!

And this week, an editor from the magazine came to the island hear the Hilton Head story.  She rode along on the morning turtle patrol to see a nest being marked.  (She is now the proud adopters of a sea turtle nest!!)   Coastal Discovery Museum CEO Rex Garniewicz was interviewed and took the opportunity to talk about our special endangered nesting sea turtles. Congratulations, Hilton Head Island!!!

 

We are up to 143 nests as of this moment  – those mothers are still making their way ashore as nesting season continues for another few weeks.  Sea turtles do not spend very much time on land – only the little bit while they dash to the ocean as babies until the female comes ashore to nest.  When a mother sea turtle comes ashore, getting to a good nesting place is a laborious and difficult task, and she usually stops to nest as soon as she reaches a dry area above the high tide line.  (Interestingly, she uses her chin to find the dry area!)  Sometimes she takes a short and direct path:

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes she wanders around a bit

                                              :

 

 

 

 

But once in a while, a mother will drag herself a v-e-r-y long way:

 

 

 

This same one even stopped a couple of times to try to nest along the way….

 

 

 

 

until she finally stopped at a sand fence to lay her eggs:

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the nest after marking

 

 

 

 

 

Unless you specified a late season nest, every adopter should have received a nest assignment from me by now – let me know if you have not.

 

Thank you so much for your interest in sea turtles and Hilton Head Island!

Dear Nest Adopters,

What a week!  The 4th of July brought lots of visitors to Hilton Head Island, and lots of “stuff” to clean up from the beach afterwards.  But it was an exciting week for sea turtle fans.

First, a mother loggerhead sea turtle become stuck in a hole on Hunting Island, just a little north of Hilton Head Island.  This mother tried to nest in an area filled with fallen trees and became lodged in a pit below one of the trees.  Volunteers were finally able to free her and she made a beeline back to the ocean.  Hooray for the Friends of Hunting Island!

 

 

 

 

Then, yesterday, a green sea turtle nested in Hilton Head – the only one on the island so far! Green sea turtles are larger than our usual loggerhead sea turtles (green is on the left),

 

 

 

 

their tracks are very different:

 

 

 

 

 

and their nesting area is quite a bit larger than the loggerheads.

 

 

 

 

 

Up to 124 nests as of this morning –interestingly it is exactly half the number of nests that we had on July 7th of last year – but the volunteers are marking the nests, cleaning up the beach and doing everything possible to make sure that the nests that are on Hilton Head Island are safe, untouched by humans or animals, and protected for the hatchings to come.

More news as it happens about your nests and the sea turtles –

Hi, all,

WOW!!  Jayme and Pat of the Sea Turtle Patrol had an awesome day yesterday – 6 new nests AND they got to see this beautiful mother making her way back to the ocean!  I will be on patrol on Friday – hoping for another full day of new nests!

 

 

 

 

 

During the next week, I will be assigning nests to most adopters.  (Since there are far fewer nests than usual, there will be some “sharing” of nests……)  Remember that if you are on the island and would like to select your nest, please let me know right away – otherwise, I will assign one to you.

Thank you so much for all you are doing to spread the word about the sea turtles!!

Andrea
