Nest Watchers Wanted

The National Park Service is looking for a few good "nest watchers" for the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

Outer Banks Group Superintendent Mike Murray says a new program will allow volunteers to monitor sea turtle nests.

Volunteers also will be trained to assist National Park Service biologists with educating the public about sea turtle management, installing and maintaining closures, handling hatchlings and assisting with excavations.

Three species of sea turtles nest within Cape Hatteras National Seashore: loggerhead, green and leatherback, all of which are considered threatened or endangered.

Those interested should leave contact information at 252-216-6892.
