When they bring the screen out, the hatchlings are soon to emerge. Will we see them tonight?
The screen is set aside during the day, as shown above. But at night it is put in place to make sure predators can't get to the tiny hatchlings should they emerge while no one is in attendance. Park rangers and volunteers monitor the nests carefully, however.
Did you know we have FORTY sea turtle nests so far this year! And the season isn't over yet!
Be sure to check out Traveling Turtle Girl for all the latest news on our sea turtles.
