A loggerhead turtle laying a clutch of eggs at Botany Bay Plantation Wildlife Management Area. Shot Weds. July 22 courtesy Stewart Grinton and Glenn Gardner-SCDNR. Note the red color so lights wouldn't disturb the nesting turtle. In South Carolina, the primary nesting beaches are between North Inlet and Prices’ Inlet, but other beaches in the southern part of the state also have moderate nesting densities.
