Remember Squirty the Loggerhead Sea Turtle we released this summer? The Burton 4 H Center is raising their next loggerhead baby! One of our summer nests hatched on August 13th and the Dept of Natural Resources gave the 4 H Center one of the babies to raise like they did Squirty with the plans to release the teen age turtle in about 18 months. This picture is of the baby freshly hatched from her nest.
You can help name this baby! Just go to http://www.burton4h.org/ and submit your name suggestion. She is currently being called Clover ( as in the 4 leaf as in the 4 H logo) , the center is hoping for a great new suggestion for the name. We’ll be keeping everyone updated on her growth and progress.
