1,000 and rising

In only 7 weeks we have already counted more thank 1,000 turtle tracks. Astonishing when you consider that in the whole of last season (4 months) we only had 1,200! As 2008 was our first season, it is impossible to know whether that was a low year and this is normal or that was a normal year and this is an unusual year.
