Turtle hatchlings emerge, make their way to the ocean

"We are so excited to share this little tidbit of news: earlier this month, an entire loggerhead sea turtle nest successfully hatched on the MD end of the island! Approximately 100 hatchlings emerged from a single nest site in the Over Sand Vehicle (OSV) zone and made their way out into the ocean." (Video courtesy of Assateague Island National Seashore)
