Grade 2 Turtle Nest Excavation - September 2020

Grade 2 students and families participated in a Department of Environment sea turtle nest excavation of a green sea turtle nest. The DoE excavates sea turtle nests to collect data after eggs in a nest have finished hatching. They dig in and document such findings as unhatched eggs, hatched shells, broken eggs and stranded live hatchlings. The grade 2 students counted 104 hatched eggs, 2 unhatched eggs, and rescued and released two hatchlings from the nest!
