We have recently seen the start of the 2015 hawksbill hatchout season in the Pearl Cays! That means hundreds of little hatchlings have been working hard to climb out of their nests and start their long journey to the great big sea! We have so far excavated over 20 nests, with nest success rates between 46-93%. We expect tens of thousands more hatchlings to make their way to sea this season (~43,000 went in 2014), especially since the nest count continues to approach what we hope will be a new project record again this year! Go hatchlings go!
