We've been busy

We've been busy since the first nest almost two weeks ago. We now have 7 nests along with 7 false crawls. So far teams have moved 689 eggs.

A false crawl is when the mother turtle comes ashore...looking for just the right spot, but doesn't find it....or something frightens her away. We had an interesting false crawl last week where the mother tried three times to get over the embankment on the beach, when she wasn't successful, sadly, she went back into the ocean without laying her eggs. Hopefully she found a good spot the next day.
