I left the volunteers here at the nest and continued walking south. A mile or two later, I came across one of the volunteers and a ranger. The ranger decided that this part of the beach was too narrow, so there was too great a risk of the eggs getting washed into the ocean. So they dug the eggs up and reburied them in a wider part of the beach that already had one turtle nest. The ranger told me that they only get 8 to 14 turtle nests all summer over the entire island, so I was pretty lucky to see one.
