50 Turtle Hatchlings were released at the Skidaway Golf Course last week. Carolyn McInerney runs the Skidaway Audubon Diamondback Terrapin Project that released these little babies back into their natural habitat. Check out the article from Savannah Morning News about how she ended up the protector of these tiny turtles. These Terrapins are the only turtles that live in the Salt Marsh. True Savannah natives!
The turtles kept laying their eggs in the sand traps on the golf course. Unfortunately these sand traps were easily accessible by predators like raccoons and crows. McInerney started this project in 2004 and last year she and her volunteers were able to release 1,851 hatchlings!
