Wildlife Biologists Reflect on Successful Sea Turtle Season

Technicians wrap up a monitoring session Little St. Simons and Ossabaw Islands.

A trio of wildlife technicians who have been working on loggerhead sea turtle monitoring on the Georgia coast shared their experiences with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources blog this week. The season has been a good one for turtles, with a near-record number of nests found on Little St. Simons (103 and counting) and almost 300 nests on Ossabaw Island.
