So following the emergence of little ‘Peri’ today (short for Peregian) we were also privileged enough to be there for the digging of the nest when our local Coast Care team dig up all the eggs to count how many hatched and how many didn’t make it. Sadly one little guy didn’t make it but 139 of his brothers and sisters did. With only 1 in 1,000 hatchlings surviving to adulthood every single baby counts so it’s amazing that so many did make it! We are so lucky to live in such an incredible part of the world 💚🌏🐢🐋 #peregianbeach#lovewhereyoulive#savetheloggerheads
Loggerhead Sea Turtle hatched egg....we saw the "Turtle Ladies" unearth a nest, but there were more unhatched (dead) eggs than hatched ones. There were no little babies in the nest. Oh well....we got to see them the first day, but no pics. Better luck next time. I hope all the babies made it to the ocean. Only 1 in 10,000 make it to maturity.
