PVB Turtle Patrol team patrols beach from May - October during Loggerhead and Green turtle nesting season.  The team is surveying a Loggerhead turtle nest that has already hatched about 3 days ago.  Objective of survey is to:
1) Count number of eggs in nest that are hatched
2) Count pips (Turtle hatched but still attached to egg yolk, could be still alive or dead)
3) Count unhatched eggs
4) Free any turtles that hatched late and are still stuck under the sand and did not make it out of the nest during the initial mass hatch.
