The first nest of the 2023 nesting season was dedicated
to our own Nanci Polk-Weckhorst!
In 1981, Nanci pioneered the original sea turtle monitoring and conservation program on Hilton Head and we are fortunate to have her back on Sea Turtle Patrol. In the video, Nanci reflects on those early years and how it feels to know that some of these early hatchlings have survived their 30 year odyssey to return to nest on the beaches of Hilton Head Island!
