Sorry Turtle Followers there is an excavation on!

Good morning turtle followers,

after a prompt update with the blog yesterday morning, I have let myself down today. We do however have an excavation on this evening, and I therefore invite everyone and anyone to come and join the volunteers in excavating the nest. The nest we are excavating today is a Green, and is our first Green pubic excavation so it is well worth a watch - although we can not guarantee there will be many hatchlings remaining in the nest as it has been hatching over the last 4 days, we do have hatchlings from Alagadi to release from this morning.

We do however ask that during the excavation , no flash photography, as not only does it show how dirty the volunteers really are, but it is also the first time these hatchlings have seen light, and the intensity could impair their sight.

We hope to see many of you there tonight, just as before, turn up at the Goat shed for 6:30pm and we will take you down to the nest from there.

Hope to see you there

  1. Sounds like you guys are really busy with all the wee ones! Great job on all the excavations! Miss you guys!
    (I laugh at the photo comment... people probably actually think you are joking about how dirty we get out there ;-)
