THREE NESTS TODAY, 5/14/19

We didn’t have any nests yesterday, so our streak was broken at 5 days.

Here are three for today:

We are really outpacing all previous years!

Our beach south of Mickler’s, which is mostly real sand with no sand bags or seawalls, is only 1.7 miles, but has 7 of our 10 nests.

Our beach north of Mickler’s, which has a significant amount of seawalls, river dirt, non-dune plants, and giant sand bags, is 2.2 miles, but only has 3 nests. Someone else in the turtle business suggested that the turtles can smell that it is not sand. Definitely something to look into. We will see how the rest of the season pans out.
