Friends of Hunting Island Loggerhead Sea Turtle Rescue Program for 2008. Daily teams patrol the park beach for signs of turtle nesting activity from May to August. Nests discovered may be moved to safer places and are protected from both natural predators and human disturbances. Beginning in August, hatching patrols keep watch for baby turtles heading toward the open ocean. This is our story of the season.
