Sea Turtle Hatching Video

Ya’ll!!! So remember we were just talking about sea turtle nesting season? This amazing video got posted on Facebook on July 12 by Karen Player Futrell who was on vacation on a nearby beach Isle of Palms. It’s amazing and absolutely worth watching in full–there are SO many adorable tiny turtles!

Keep an eye out for these nests when you’re out and about on the island or any of the beaches in the Charleston, SC area. Remember to never touch or disturb a sea turtle nest and to turn out the lights at night on the beach to help the babies keep their sense of direction on their way back out to sea.

The turtle nest near our beach yoga class spot is still holding strong as far as we know—but it won’t be long before there are little fin scoots through the sand!

Sea Turtle Nesting Season

Cheering for all of these little guys and gals out on the island tonight! These sweet little babies were laid close to our beach yoga class spot. We are so very much hoping to see little scoots in the sand headed back to their real home soon!

Fun fact I learned tonight on FollyTurtles.com: Female turtles will return to the beach that they were born on to lay their eggs. How beautiful is that? Folly gals!

Such a tiny fraction of these beautiful creatures will survive to reproduce….but YOU have the power to help. Remember lights out on the beach at night, fill in any holes and knock down sand castles at the end of the day, and please clean up any trash.
