Great news! Nest Number Nine hatched September 16th! There were a few reports of disoriented babies, but they all made it to the waiting waves just fine. The wonderful people with the Tybee Sea Turtle Project excavated the evening of September 20th and in all, 45 healthy babies hatched! There were no stragglers or casualties left in the nest, so this nest was a super success!
It’s a great way to wrap up the 2011 Tybee Island sea turtle season for sure! Thanks to everyone with the Tybee Sea Turtle Project for all your hard work and dedication. We can’t wait to see what the 2012 season will bring!
