Loggerhead Sea Turtle Nest with Eggs Visible

Image: Loggerhead Sea Turtle Nest with Eggs Visible

Detailed Description

Beach erosion by a tropical storm produced the cliff-like escarpment seen in this image and accidentally exposed about 8% of the eggs in this loggerhead sea turtle nest. The protective stakes mark a nest from an earlier week as part of a county research program that marks and records every eighth nest.
