I'd like to give you a few statistics for the season. All of these stats and many more are available on seaturtle.org.
Eggs laid - 3,924 - Harbor/ 365,787 Statewide
Hatchlings emerged - 2,149 - Harbor/ 174,510 - Statewide
Mean incubation - 58.7 - Harbor / 57.9 days - Statewide
Mean clutch (nest) size - 101.1 - Harbor / 110.7 - Statewide
Eggs lost - 15.9% - Harbor / 3% - Statewide
All in all, a good year. SC Department of Natural Resources reports that nest counts have gone up for the last three years. This is viewed as a trend and that our population of nesting females is increasing.
