A sad discovery, a caution to beachgoers

Sad start to the morning today finding this guy washed up on the beach. This serves as an unfortunate reminder that we are all guests on the beach to the wildlife that calls the ocean their home.

We are not sure exactly why this loggerhead turtle died, but we do believe it was an early end to his life. Remember to be respectful when spending time at the beach by doing little things like picking up your trash before you leave and never leaving tents/umbrellas/chairs out overnight.

    It just could have been natural causes, why all the guilt?

    Thanks for the reminder, we all need to do our part to keep the beaches clean and give these guys the best environment we can.
