~Sally’s Diary~

As part of running a successful hatchery, it is important to monitor the birth rate of the baby turtles and to check that we are doing everything correctly.  Today, Michelle, Andy and myself dug out the old nests after the hatchings have been already born to see what has happened to the eggs that didn’t hatch.  Some don’t hatch because they have not been fertilized or others don’t form properly in the egg.  All this information is gathered and later we will supply it to WWF and the marine Universities for their studies of turtle populations.
