Archelon, the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece is excited to announce that our first Loggerhead Sea Turtle (Caretta caretta) nests have hatched! This means that we will be holding our first public excavations of the hatched nests this week. When we excavate the nests, we dig up all the eggs to count how many have hatched and it is a brilliant opportunity to see up close the work that we do and to possibly see some baby hatchlings as well!
