Last Spring I wrote about the new beaches and all the tilling that was going on to make our Hilton Head Island Beaches better for visitors and sea turtles.....well that certainly seems to have been the case as we now have over 250 Sea Turtle nests on Hilton Head so far this season. One of the nests, which happened to be the first nest of the season, and first of it's kind on  the Island was a a rare species of sea turtle called a Kemp's Ridley..

So while we once again are seeing lots of Summer vacationers come to our beautiful Island, we have more and more sea turtles making their nests here too!
