    Sea world usually does stuff with them as does FWC (fish and game), as of this morning there were still 12 foot waves, so hopefully some can be saved.

    This makes me worried that the ones in N.C. are in danger.
    My DD spent alot of her vacation last week observing the nesting sites.
    She was convinced they were gonna hatch right in front of her eyes.
    The lady at Fort Fisher aquaraium said they should be hatching very soon.
