Turtle News

Thursday was a busy day on Dewees Island for nesting mamas.  During turtle patrol Claudia found a set of false crawl tracks as well as a nest.  The nest was left where the mamma chose well above the high tide line.  This brings our number of nests to 3 and our number of false crawls to 3 for the season. Please follow the Dewees Island Turtle Team Facebook page for updates.
