31 and counting!

As of July 14, 2009, 31 loggerhead turtles' nests have been found on Seabrook Island, SC. Wouldn't you know it-- three nests were found the day I left Seabrook.

To stay up to date with the nests found, visit the Seabrook Island Turtle Patrol's website. Pay attention to the dates in the far right-hand column. These are the "hatch" dates. Looks like some baby turtles could be hatching soon and making their way to the big, blue ocean.

If you haven't taken your summer vacation, it's a great time to visit Seabrook. Now through the end of August, you could even have a chance at seeing a turtle's nest "boil" and the hatchlings race to the water!
