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


2011: Nest #5

THIS IS SO EXCITING, LAST NIGHT ABOUT 11:30 I GOT A CALL FROM DEPUTY KEITH WHO WAS ON THE BEACH WITH NIGHT VISON CAMERA AND VISION AND SAW THIS WONDERFUL LOGGERHEAD NESTING AND CALLED ME, AS THERE WERE NOT MANY PEOPLE AROUND WE DID NOT GO AND LEFT HER ALONE TO DO HER THING.  KEITH TALKED TO A FEW PEOPLE AROUND ABOUT THE  IMPORTANCE OF NOT USING WHITE EMITTING FLASHLIGHTS ON THE BEACH AND WATCHED UNTIL SHE WENT BACK INTO THE WATER, WHEN WE FOUND THE NEST THIS MORNING SHE HAD LAID ONLY 26 FEET FROM THE WATER SO WE MOVED THE NEST BACK TO PROTECT IT. HURRAH WEST END. GOOD DEBBIE.  #5
