Here are some of my shots from our day at the Wetlands Institute.

Here are some of the headstarted hatchlings before release:

Here are the WI volunteers showing the terrapins (Malaclemys terrapin) to the kids:
Here's an injured/rehabbed female, being released by the kindergarten teacher:

Here is a kid doing his own release with a couple WI interns:
A shot of the marsh:

Some amorous horseshoe crabs:
Here's the female who chose the perfect time and place (the path to the release site, just as a crowd of children and media were walking by) to dig her nest:

I'll wind up with one of the really cool predator excluder devices, a cage that keeps out the crows, raccoons, skunks, and anything else that would eat the eggs:
