Local non-profit Outer Banks Forever invites you to join them on their Facebook page at 6 p.m. tonight, Thursday, September 22, to watch biological science technicians from Cape Hatteras National Seashore excavate a sea turtle nest on Ocracoke Island via livestream.

During the excavation, technicians will count empty eggshells, collect unhatched eggs, and occasionally find live and/or deceased hatchlings.

While the biological technicians perform their examination of the nest, a park ranger will present a program on sea turtles and share what the biologists have found.
