On May 08,2010 An endangered Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle was seen by a Walton County Life Guard nesting in the Dune Allan area. We were called and marked this nest. At this time the Deep Water Horizon Oil disaster was ongoing. We marked the nest according to our sea turtle permit. As this oil disaster continued it was decided that all sea turtle nests on the Gulf Coast be dug up and hatched in coolers at the Kennedy Space Center. So at day 49 the eggs were dug up by a group of trained people and moved to Kennedy. This was the very first nest on the Gulf Coast moved. The eggs hatched and out of 67 eggs, 57 hatchlings came out. These endangered sea turtle hatchlings were released into the Atlantic Ocean. As the summer goes on we will continue to relocate our nests to this area. We are having a very big part in protecting the endangered sea turtles.
