Hatching has Begun

posted: July 16, 2019, 11:04 AM

It's the time of year we've all been waiting for - baby turtles on Holden Beach! Two nests hatched or "boiled" as we call it on Saturday night and since then another five nests have boiled. Most of the nests have boiled without displaying a depression or the sign that the babies are coming out of their shells under the sand. A couple, though, have depressions like the one shown here.

And, mother turtles are still laying nests - we now have a total of 82 record breaking nests on the beach. Many have actually seen the mother turtles coming from the ocean to lay their nests!

Children's Turtle Time will take place on Wednesday, 7/17/19, at 4pm and Turtle Talk will take place at 7pm. Both will be at Town Hall.
