As manager of Sea Turtle Patrol Hilton Head and owner of Spartina Marine Education Charters, Amber Kuehn has experienced the beauty of the Lowcountry from the perspective of a marine biologist, a scuba instructor and dive boat captain. She shared some interesting statistics about turtle nesting on Hilton Head Island, along with fascinating stories about Myrtle and Stumpy, two of the logger head turtles that return year-after-year to lay their eggs. Additionally, she explained the purpose behind some of the new ordinances passed that protect sea turtles, including how lights, holes and trash on the beach create obstacles for turtles to nest and for hatchlings to make it to the sea
