This image is of a green sea turtle only one of the many turtle species affected by the spill. One of the primary nesting grounds for turtles (mainly loggerheads) is on the beaches of South Carolina. If you would like to get involved with the Isle of Palms or Sullivan's Island Turtle Teams (Like us!) visit their website here. There is nothing more rewarding than watching turtles hatch from a nest you helped find!
