Well, last night’s hiatus on the blog was a great thing, as I started out this morning fresh and rarin’ to go. However, as the day progressed, the Wall (which descended so inelegantly on me last night – and this was a Great Wall of China-sized wall) snuck it’s head back out and grabbed me while I wasn’t looking. Thus, I must beg your forgiveness one more evening for a full and complete update. Some highlights:
- OMTU Status: The OMTU has seen a almost complete turnover since last we met. Gone are the stellar Unit members Sarah Wilkin, Alexis Gutierrez and Lanni Hall, and in their respective places are Carrie Hubard, Sara McNulty and our own Kaiti Ferguson (yes, Kaiti gets to come join the party!). Thx to all for such superlative work!
- Turtles collected (as of 1200 14 Jun): 88 total live turtles (50 oiled); 333 total dead turtles (7 oiled)
- Dolphins collected (as of 1200 14 Jun): 41 total dead dolphins (2 oiled)
- Status of necropsies: 75 turtles and 14 dolphins done to date – no oil noted in or on any turtle evaluated, oil on 2 dolphins.
A full and complete report will be delivered tomorrow. Until then, have a pleasant evening.
