The Turtle Nest

Baby Loggerhead

Welcome to The Turtle Nest!  We (the turtles and I) are so glad you are here!  This site was created to spread the word about endangered loggerhead turtles.  The experiences, photos, and information shared on this web site have been obtained through participating in the Kiawah Island Turtle Patrol program.  Please sit back, relax, and "surf" with the turtles!

2013 Turtle Season

October 3rd - A few more wild nests have hatched, bringing Kiawah's total number of turtle nests to 403 for the 2013 nesting season. "Wild nests" are nests that were not initially located by nesting patrol, but found later by the hatching patrol. There are still just a few nests that have not hatched, so keep watching this space!
