Every year, up and down the Southeast Coast the Loggerhead turtle nesting and hatching season is carefully monitored. This batch of 54 baby turtles was collected from a re-located nest, carefully placed into a very practical Home Depot five-gallon bucket and transported back to the surf, escaping the hungry waiting gulls and baking July sun of the south.
