Blog Your Blessings: Another Loggerhead Baby Heads for the Sea


Amid all the activity on the beach this evening--Marines in their various helicopters playing tag in the sky, pelicans outflying them, seagulls eating dead stingrays, sandpipers being themselves, children eating sand--a baby loggerhead made its way to the top of its nest and into the hands of a volunteer from the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehab. Center, to be swept into the wide-open arms of the Atlantic amid the cheering of about 50 people. The turtle walked about 20 feet to the water's edge--enough to imprint Topsail as home (I can relate.). After a little boost from another volunteer, the turtle disappeared into the night sea. Magic. Life.

  7. That was cool to see. How interesting that it only needed 20 feet of walking in the sand to know for the rest of its life that this beach is home.

  9. How exciting to get to see this. I have seen one of these huge turtles in the sea. It is amazing to me that they start out so tiny. I hope and pray it makes it.
