Turtle Trek in South Carolina

Atlantic Loggerhead Sea Turtles recently hatched along Hunting Island. Senior Naturalist Andy Brown of the Battle Creek Cypress Swamp and other onlookers watched as more than a hundred baby Atlantic Loggerhead Sea Turtles hatched and made their way to the Atlantic Ocean in a moonlight sky. To go on a Turtle Trek or other fun adventure contact the Battle Creek Nature Education Society. View the entire article and fun sea turtle pictures at Southern Maryland Newspapers Online.

Very few sea turtles as babies survive. But as adults these beautiful creatures are critical to our ocean. Look at the National Geographic Sea Turtle Flag which is a wonderful picture of a beautiful sea turtle swimming.
