Lots Of Turtle Nests At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod!

152 views

You can tell where the turtle nests are at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary by the little cages around them and the blue flag. The species in each cage is also identified. I saw some Painted Turtle cages and some Diamondback Terrapin nests.

It will be very interesting when the little ones hatch and try to make it back to the waters of Cape Cod Bay. I remember last year seeing some of them which the volunteers had collected to help them on their way and they were tiny, only about an inch.

Have you seen the nest cages at the Sanctuary? Or anywhere else?

  1. It makes me very happy to see these protective cages for the various turtle species. I absolutely love turtles and they are indeed worthy of our protection. I maintained a turtle pond outside my classroom and more learning took place there than inside. Thanks for sharing this with us, Mel!
