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!

2014 Turtle Season

April 23, 2014 - The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources says that the first stranding has been recorded for South Carolina. Far more exciting is that the first 2 loggerhead nests were found in Florida, so Kiawah should not be far behind! Will our loggerhead mamas begin on Mother’s Day week-end as usual? Stay tuned…

See you on the beach!  Kelly
