Over 370 sea turtles nested at the Seashore this summer; Outer Banks Forever releases 2022 ‘Sea Turtle Scoop’

Did you know that biological science technicians at Cape Hatteras National Seashore carefully track, learn from and protect hundreds of sea turtle nests each summer?

While human visitors flocked to the Seashore this summer, more than 370 sea turtles also made their way here to nest. 

Outer Banks Forever is excited to announce that more than 28,000 sea turtle hatchlings made their way to the ocean in 2022 and that supporters helped raise $23,405 through the Adopt A Sea Turtle Nest program to protect and enhance the Seashore!
