MANY THANKS to all of the volunteers who patrol the beach every morning in an effort to give the sea turtle eggs the very best chance of surviving. Learn more about Jacksonville Beach Sea Turtles on our wonderful Beaches Sea Turtle Patrol on their website: www.bstp.net
It's not often that you see the tracks of the female sea turtle this distinctly. Here are the tracks as she came in to lay her eggs this morning and the tracks as she went back out to sea. Look at the difference in the width of her stride. She was carrying a heavy load in and quickly scurried back out to sea.
