Gordon’s Surprise for Alabama Point
From Peggy & Herman Lively (AP Team Leaders): July 1, 2018
Got a call from Lisa Graham about midnight. The clean-up crew spotted a Mama coming ashore East of Dolphin Key. They said she did not lay. I went back to sleep and waited for morning patrol to call. Rick and Lisa L were patrolling. Rick called in 2 false crawls before 6 a.m. As Rick continued patrol, to his excitement, he saw a VERY obvious nest site! I hurried to the loaded and ready Turtle Taxi after calling Susie G to text the list. The same Mama made 2 false crawls (36 “) and nested!!!!!!
As the team arrived we began looking for eggs. Susie G found them quickly. Mama had laid VERY close to shore and 93 eggs were safely relocated due North. This is a great start to July! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, Miss LK , Kathy!!!!! Congrats to Chuck M for finding a nest today at GSP! Thanks , Chuck for sharing your time and talents with AP.
Thanks to all who came to help. Thanks to the good Lord for letting us enjoy Paradise!
