LoggerheadonJune112018

There is a new mania on the island! I walk my dog Cashew every morning on the beaches of Sea Pines for the past 7 years. Tourists get excited about coming here and we residents get excited about the sea turtles nesting. This morning we caught a glimpse of a mom laying her eggs and caught her going back into the ocean.

David Love's photo of tagged alligator in Sea Pines

Sea Pines has volunteered to be in a first-of-its-kind alligator research and study program that's being conducted by Clemson University, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and Nemours Wildlife Foundation of Yemassee. They're looking into how alligators behave in residential communities.

Alligators are apex predators and play a crucial role in fostering a healthy ecosystem. They can grow to over 13 feet in length, weigh up to a half-ton and live as long as humans. They are highly intelligent creatures. When the weather warms up in spring, and love is in the air, males begin roaming about and fighting for territory.
