Sixteen campers from the Camp Wildwood third year program set out at dusk on Botany Bay Plantation WMA in search of sea turtles. With help from Chris Salmonsen from the Department of Natural Resources, they got to see nearly 20 hatchlings emerge from their nests, and helped ensure all made it safely into the surf. Please note the use of red turtle friendly approved lights and that infrared was used to film the scenes. During the nesting season, loggerheads may be disoriented by artificial lights. A disorientation event occurs when artificial light from man-made sources leads turtles away from the ocean. So remember "Lights Out for Loggerheads!" http://www.dnr.sc.gov/seaturtle/light...
