    A team of University of Hawai‘i specialists on contract with the U.S. Navy Pacific Missile Range Facility at Barking Sands and a Kaua‘i Marine Mammal Response field coordinator from the Protected Species Program of the state Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Aquatic Resources excavate a hatched green sea turtle nest late last month. It was the first hatching of the year at PMRF.
