Big Day for the Volunteer Turtle Program at Keji

Last week was an exciting time for turtle volunteers. The first known female from a protected nest nested on June 19th! The turtle, named Dillon Lorraine, hatched from a protected nest on Atkins Beach in 1998 and was re-notched as a juvenile in 2001 by Jeffie McNeil from the Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute (MTRI). The turtle’s mother is Suzie and her birth nest was protected by Dr. Tom Herman (Acadia). There were no sightings of Dillon Lorraine after 2003 until she was found at Heber Meadow in 2015 by the Keji’s Turtle Monitoring volunteer Lauren Lawrence.
