Turtle Season in South Carolina


Back in 2011, I had occasion to visit Isle of Palms in South Carolina, and I wrote this post about what a great visit that was.  Especially memorable were the loggerhead sea turtles that nest on those beaches, closely monitored by the South Carolina DNR and dedicated teams of volunteers. Today, I’m reporting that the 2014 turtle nesting season is well underway.  Check it out!
