After the storm

posted: September 29, 2018, 6:09 PM

There is good news after the storm. Usually if we have a hurricane it brings an exciting and abrupt end of the turtle season. When the island was evacuated there were two unhatched nests left. Our Program Coordinator went out after the storm on Wednesday September 22 to check on nests 28 and 29. He was not expecting to not find much, and to his surprise found nest 28 with two hatchlings trying to get out. Both were energetic and went right into the water so a happy ending. Both nests had hatched and were relatively dry so we're pleased with their success.They did it on their own despite the Mother Nature's fury.
