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


2014: Nest #40

Nest #39 another one for our Miramar area, this loggerhead found by Erica, and marked with the help of Shar. The nest is in the open area just west of Pompano Joe’s a crossed from Avalon. We usually have a nest in this area and every time, there are so many lights in that area that the poor turtle can’t find her way back to the water, She goes up and down and all around after she has nested. She is tired and the way to the water should be to the lightest area but those darn artificial lights mess her up. Here is her track back. Shar and nest.
