About a week has gone by since we saw the last adult tracks. There was a nest on Ponta Jelonga (Costa Fragata) - unfortunately by the time the Rangers arrived a dog had already dug it up - the eggs were all broken and scattered over the beach. What a sad fate for our final nest of the 2009 season.
On the plus side, we have been in the peak of the hatching season, often with over a hundred hatchlings being born in the hatchery each night. The beaches are full of miniature turtle tracks from the hatchlings dashing from the nest to the sea (hopefully in the right direction).
We expect the last nest in the hatchery to hatch around the 10th December, so we will be finishing up quite a lot earlier than last year.
