Biologists with Pacific Missile Range Facility and partners with the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration excavate a green sea turtle nest and discover 76 hatched eggs and four nonviable eggs, at PMRF Barking Sands, Hawaii, Sept. 22, 2023. This was the only honu (sea turtle) nest on the installation this year, said Stephen Rossiter, the natural resources field coordinator for PMRF. The assumption, he said, is that the 76 babies made it to the ocean. In this photo, Daniela Casillas, a field biologist at PMRF, holds recently hatched sea turtle eggs.
