Loggerhead Turtle Found Dead on Kill Devil Hills Beach
Kill Devil Hills Ocean Rescue reports that they found a dead loggerhead turtle that had apparently washed up on the beach in the town this morning (7/10/20).
In statement posted to social media, KDH Ocean Rescue said, “We are not sure exactly why this loggerhead turtle died, but we do believe it was an early end to his life. Remember to be respectful when spending time at the beach by doing little things like picking up your trash before you leave and never leaving tents/umbrellas/chairs out overnight.”
This obviously serves as yet another reminder that all humans are guests on the beach to the wildlife that lives in the ocean, and to please be careful and respectful when enjoying these animals’ home.
