Yesterday, May 22nd, Dauphin Island Share the Beach team members found their first sea turtle nest of the season. From their FB page:
J1 is here.
After responding to our fifth report of terrapin tracks or nests, we finally have our first sea turtle nest. We have a wonderful team this year, and Josh, a new volunteer, found this nest on his first patrol. Great job Josh. That’s certainly an awesome way to start your sea turtle season.
So far there are 3 nests this season since the first one on May 18th. More to come………
