WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The Sunset Beach Turtle Watch has discovered its first turtle nest of the season.

Per a Facebook post, they have photos of the turtle itself from around 4:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 24.

If you find a turtle nest, Turtle Watch asks you to stay clear and avoid turtle tracks entirely. Watching from a distance in the dark is fine, but flash photography and flashlights can be irritating.

You can learn more about the Sunset Beach Turtle Watch on their website.
