NEVER PUSH OR ATTEMPT TO ASSIST STRANDED ANIMALS BACK TO THE WATER! More harm can be done and it is illegal without proper permits. 


2010: Nest 23

Sandestin of course.  Found this morning, a small Loggerhead with a small crawl, we have seen her before.  She did not come far out of the water to nest.  Note the tracks, and they say Loggerhead, alternating, small no tail drag, no front flippers, can see all of the back flippers. Had to really work hard to keep the day cleaners off the beach, told them to stop at Sandestin and they did, and boy do they drive fast, hopefully after phones call they will stop nest time and go slower.  Also had to fight the vendors, what fun.  As always Sandestin has a nest.  Next picture will be of the nest.

 

This is a loggerhead nest, not much to it correct.  But it is a nest,  she came in with her track on the right, she how she then covered up part of that track with thrown sand, they she went out to the left.  Not a lot of thrown sand but loggerheads do not always thrown a lot of sand,  Greens do…You who walk at night please know the difference between the two and never, I mean never follow a sea turtle up the beach.
