ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – News4Jax is tracking the sea turtle count on St. Augustine Beach.
First Light Insite, a Facebook page that posts magnificent videos and photos, caught the Sea Turtle Patrol evaluating a nest.
The group is permitted to check nests and evaluate just how many turtles have hatched.
You can see (in the video below) a woman digging down into the sand to help remove eggshells, unhatched eggs and hatchlings.
These babies were checked out and helped to the ocean on Monday.
