In this episode, I speak with Nancy Fahey of the Wrightsville Beach Sea Turtle Project. We talk the life span, gestational period, and migratory patterns of Loggerhead sea turtles, why North Carolina and Virginia, in particular, are imperative for the preservation of sea turtles, and why we might be seeing some really good trends for the populations of these majestic creatures.
In our conversation, Nancy mentions a few resources for people local to the North Carolina area to call if they come across a sea turtle or a sea turtle nest, which I have dropped in below. Hope you enjoy the podcast!
