Kemp's ridley Nesting Season has Begun on the Texas Coast

By 2

Today the first Kemp's ridley nest was confirmed on the Texas coast for 2014. It was located at Padre Island National Seashore. Another set of tracks was also found there, but was quite blown away and continues to be investigated. Yesterday, a set of turtle tracks was found on North Padre Island, north of Padre Island National Seashore, but they were much too narrow for nesting Kemp's ridley and there was no nest located there. -- Donna J.
