I see you had a next open up in Duck, NC. That's great! My family vacations in Duck throughout the year with our next trip on the week of the 27th. I'd love to meet some NEST folks, see what you're up to and write up a post for the blog on it. WHo should I contact?   @JerryAlexander Thanks Jerry, I just checked out the site.

This year a volunteer group by the name of N.E.S.T.(Network for Endangered Sea Turtles) has a record number of nest here on the Outer Banks of NC. from the VA/NC boarder to almost Oregon Inlet NC. Some of the nest are staring to Hatch.Further south on Pea Island,and Hatteras Island we have many nest,and not enough volunteers to tend to them when they are ready to boil,and therefore their survival rate may suffer somewhat.because of the many predators that will have a free hand  at them;nobody there to run the predators away. We use 5 ATV`S to run the beaches each morning during the season.The ATV`S break down now and then,and we have other problems but! we have managed to make it work via donations,Tee Shirt sales,and other means of generating funds for our cause....but it`s tight most of the time.Anyway! we`ve been at it for over 15 yrs now,and loving every moment. N.E.S.T. Volunteers have been the greatest.They receive calls very early in the am,and late in the pm,and never balk,or,complain regardless of the weather...they just show up ready to help..Volunteers do wonders.Please check out our site;lot`s of photo`s of past and current Turtle Activities...it is loaded with information about Sea Turtles....Loaded!  and has links to other Sea Turtle organizations from NC to FL. Please get back with any suggestions you may have,or comments about our site,and N.E.S.T. if you would.We love to hear from Turtle People.

Hope that helps.   --Dave Connell  @JerryAlexander Thanks for the Question, the numbers all come from the presentation at the TEDed site, which we link to in the post, but you can find here: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-survival-of-the-sea-turtle
