52 days later, on August 19, as volunteers from the NMSTP started to gather, the sand fell and a good size depression formed. Just after 9PM, the little guys started their march to the ocean.
Inventory was conducted on August 23 at 7PM.
One live hatchling was still in the nest. Savannah, one of the NMBSTP younger volunteers was asked to release the turtle on the beach for it's crawl to the ocean.
Goody-bye. Good Luck!!
Fall is approaching, Sun is setting earlier and earlier. Clouds are gathering. Hurricane Irene is out in the ocean!!
