Sea Turtles and Hilton Head Island!

Dear Sea Turtle Nest Adopters,

Whoever guessed May 4th for the first Hilton Head Island sea turtle nest would have been correct – today was the day of our first AND second nests of the season!

In the early hours of this morning,

a mother loggerhead sea turtle like this one dragged her huge body ashore in Sea Pines Plantation, spent a long time digging a 3 foot deep hole, and laid her 133 eggs into it, then tiredly made her way back to the ocean.

Little did she know that she had chosen a spot on the beach that will be having an emergency re-nourishment this summer…..but not to worry!  Our trained and experienced turtle patrol very gently removed all of her eggs and re-buried them in a safe spot further up the beach.  This relocation of nests is very safe when done by experts – in fact our relocated nests last year had a higher success rate than non-relocated nests.  (Even sea turtles need some help sometimes!)

Here are Carrell and Pat carefully moving the eggs from Nest # 1:

The turtle team marked the nest to alert everyone to the endangered species nest there and continued down the beach, searching for more tracks…..and found a set of tracks in Port Royal Plantation near the Westin – Nest # 2.  We are off to a great start!!!

 

 

Many more details about the process as we go along – thank you so much for your support of the Hilton Head Sea Turtle Protection Project!
