No Alagadi hatchlings.

Once again, we have had no nests hatch during the night. This means no public excavation or hatchling release tonight. This inactivity suggests that the remaining nests we have left are unfortunately on their way to failing, which is usually the case with a females last clutch.

Instead, the volunteers will be working hard to remove the cages from the beach. We are starting with Bay 3 of Alagadi 1 today and will have all the cages removed by the end of the season. Alagadi will most definitely look different without 202 white dome cages scattered across it.

Hope you've enjoyed this season as much as the project has. We will hopefully post some season summaries of Alagadi, North and West beaches so that you know what's happened.
