Sea Turtle Nest Inventory on Monday, September 10th at 6:45 pm
There will be a loggerhead sea turtle nest inventory conducted on Monday, September 10th at 6:45 pm. The inventory will take place on South beach just past the first groin, heading South on the beach.
If severe weather conditions are expected on Hunting Island during the time of the inventory stated above, a cancellation notice will be sent out by 3 pm on the day of the inventory.
A nest inventory is conducted 72 hours after a nest has hatched, in order to determine the success of the nest. The nest is excavated and all contents are removed and documented. Occasionally live hatchlings are found in the nest and released, so this is a good opportunity to possibly see live loggerhead hatchlings, although there is no guarantee.
If you are a FOHI Sea Turtle Conservation Project Volunteer, please wear your orange volunteer shirt and badge, so that you can help with crowd management.
This inventory is open to the public, so feel free to post to social media or share; just remember that everyone is responsible for their own admission to the park. FOHI members and guests are covered by their membership
