SWTWG will no longer post our nests. Posting nests has created a problem in that we have many people waiting for any action on these nests and trying to be around when it hatches. It is very important that sea turtles be left alone. Nesting females need dark, quiet beaches, to nest on and hatchlings need to be able to emerge and go quickly to the water without lights or people. It is a process that we as volunteers keep our distances and try not to interfere in anyway. These are solitary creatures and we do our very best to keep our beach a good nesting and hatching habitat. Our volunteers are up very early in the morning in season to monitor the beaches for any sea turtle tracks. This is the way we find nests and false crawls and it is disturbing to us when we see people tracks or hear stories of people around sea turtles just because they want to experience something. Hopefully sea turtle will be able to use our wonderful beaches in peace for many years to come. We value your support and and thank you for understanding.
