We are finally online!

A huge hello there to all our trusty turtle followers!

We apologise for the delay in getting the blog up and running, we had some technical issues that needed to be sorted out before we could log on and update you lovely people. The season so far has been booming with an encouraging sign of clean turtles (no flipper tags of microchips) coming up so far to lay their clutches. Alagadi nesting and our west base nesting is looking very encouraging possibly showing the early signs for another record year! While our north coast seems to be in a period of calm with few nests, the totalling to date, reaching 26. Do not fret however this is most likely to be due to females having their 'break seasons'. We will just have to wait and see what happens next year!

Our nesting excursions are still in full swing, so for those who wish to come and join us for one night, can either book via visiting the Goatshed, or by telephoning us on : 05338798533.

Our first nest of this season is due to hatch within the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye on the blog for news of our public excavations and stories of volunteers experiences on the project.

Fingers cross for a record year... bring it on!
