From Lisa Graham (Orange Beach Team Leader) – Aug 22nd:
5 more babies were found in H-4 [last night] for a total of 41/108 to the water. 64 infertile, 3 dead embryo. Good job Donna and Jerrie with the excavation.
We got the ok to excavate H-3 as well. We had been hearing waterfalls for 7 days and were on day 73. We found 2/124 live hatchlings abt 12″ down. 9 dead embryos and 113 infertile/addled. Cindy and Will – great job!
Was surprised to find so many infertile in both nests. Figured we would have mostly dead embryos because of T.S. Cindy.
Thanks to everyone for being there tonight!! We have a break until H-6 & H-7. We will start monitoring day 50 which is 9/6.
Y’all are the best OB TEAM!!
