There’s wonderful news on the Tybee Island sea turtle front today! Our very own Jan and Bobby Meyer (on their very first patrol!) and the hard working people with the Tybee Sea Turtle Project discovered a new nest last Thursday morning! That’s nest number two for the island so far, and we are SO excited! Here’s the post from the Tybee Sea Turtle Project’s Facebook page:
“We have nest #2 this morning! It is located in front of Officers Row. This is the area to the south of Gullick Street at North Beach. The original nest was located at the rack line; Tammy relocated it to the dune area.”
How wonderful, and what a beautiful picture! Although this is number two for Tybee, the state of Georgia has recorded 230 nests since April, when the first nest was found on Cumberland Island.
