@waldorffphotography • • • • • • “Diving In” This is one of my favorite sea turtle photos I took during my trip to Florida’s Atlantic Coast last month. I love how this Loggerhead Hatchling is pushing forward and appears to be diving headfirst into a wave as it makes first contact with the ocean after its dangerous journey to the water after hatching - an opportunistic ghost crab or bird would’ve loved to turn him into a meal! In the ocean, it’s fight is far from over. It will swim for many miles, while dodging a multitude of predators, until it reaches the Sargassum Seaweed beds where it will rest, hide, and feed for years until it becomes a juvenile, or about the size of a dinner plate. To give you an idea of how dangerous this journey is, approximately 1 in a 1000 hatchlings will survive to adulthood! . . . . #turtlehatchling

Simply stunning - a Flatback hatchling. The only species that have eye colour when they hatch 🐢

These 16 Diamondback terrapin hatchlings brought us up to 2,000 patients and counting so far for 2019! They were brought in by Barnstable Department of Natural Resources after their nest was parasitized. Fortunately all of them were unharmed. Diamondbacks are listed as a threatened species in Massachusetts. To help increase population size these little guys will be overwintered and released in the spring to give them a head start at life. This endangered species program we participate in is run by Barnstable Department of Natural Resources. #turtlehatchling

It is officially hatchling season at Pinery! These tiny dino’s are emerging from their nests and making their way to the water! 🐢🌊🦖🦕 If you are visiting Pinery in the next few weeks here are some tips to help keep the itty bitty turtles safe: 🚘🚧🚦drive slowly through the park 👀🕵️‍♀️👀 keep your eyes on the road for little turtles, they will be about the size of a toonie and look like oil spots on the ground 🛑✋🛑 STOP where safe to do so and help the turtle across the road 📞📞📞 notify park staff of where you found the baby turtles so they can monitor the nest and ensure the turtles make it safely to water . .

The last inventory. All the nests have hatched and the summer of sea turtles is over. We had 27 nests... More nests than we've had in years. All of them were successful with an average 92% hatch rate. Six of them survived being vandalized, they all survived the king's high tide numerous times, plus they all came through hurricane Dorian without a problem. It's been so amazing and such a blessing... A lifesaver and a game changer for me. After watching these little sea turtles begin their amazing journey it has reminded me that anything is possible. 🐢 hatchling
