Helping the hatchlings of Fripp Island

Published at 9:47 a.m. on August 26, 2013

The Fripp Island Turtle Team spends late spring and early summer monitoring loggerheads who come ashore to nest, sometimes several times each season. By mid-summer, its focus has shifted to the results of those deposits -- hatchlings. The team usually draws an audience of onlookers eager for a glimpse of one of the baby loggerheads as they struggle to find the sea.
