12 Nests Since the Last Update

We have had 12 new nests since the last update to the page. That includes 4 loggerhead nests today, two yesterday, one on June 20, two on June 14, two on June 13, and one on June 12. During the same time period we also had 11 false crawls.

Totals as of June 22

One of the false crawls last night was our second “Busy Betty” crawl. She left 7 abandoned body pits this time, with no nest. Our hearts break for this poor turtle. She exerts so much effort, but for some reason cannot dig an egg chamber in which to deposit her eggs.
